    Embed the Firebird installer in my own installer?


    Is it possible to embed/include the Firebird installer into my own custom installer?

    So when the end user install my application, then the firebird service is automatic installed on his machine.

    Without the end user need to run a separate firebird installer.


    Regards

    Yes you can , (i think installer has an silent option) also the source code for installer is available.
    look on fb-devel or support archive

    ps: once upon a time had made an one floppy installer for full server

    from InnoSetup help file (http://www.jrsoftware.org/):
    /SILENT, /VERYSILENT
    Instructs Setup to be silent or very silent. When Setup is silent the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation progress window is. When a setup is very silent this installation progress window is not displayed. Everything else is normal so for example error messages during installation are displayed and the startup prompt is (if you haven't disabled it with DisableStartupPrompt or the '/SP-' command line option explained above)

    If a restart is necessary and the '/NORESTART' command isn't used (see below) and Setup is silent, it will display a Reboot now? message box. If it's very silent it will reboot without asking.
