Hi ,

I have two diffrent WSP for MOSS 2007. One is List event Handler and other containing  webparts. I would like to deploy multiple wsp on a single click  using SharePoint Solution Installer.

Is there any changes need to do in setup.exe.config ?  I am using version 1.2.2.

According to notes that I have read on the site in the Discussions, you can install mutliple Solutions by sepearating their SolutionId and SolutionFile values with a semicolon (;) however I have not attempted this yet. Also as an added word of caution, I have found that it is much easier for maintenance to have an "installer" for ALL Event Receivers (handlers) and another for WebParts or even groups of WebParts. This gives you added flexibility to make changes to the Event Receivers and do smaller, incremental based deployments. You could always build a dependency check into your WebPart Feature Reciever to validate that a certain Event Receiver is available already if it is required.

I have the same question.

Is there a way to combine webparts and web-scoped features?
