Hello again everyone!

Today I has a little bit complicated thing to do.
I am trying to make a program which install few other programs.
I have already composed 2 Window Forms Applications (see picture links below)
Step 2: http://www.daniweb.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=12171&stc=1&d=1255853689

As you can see on picture of Step 2, I have few check boxes on it. I would like when I click Install, it installs selected components. Now problem is that setup.exe file of each program requires some user input (like installation path, create shortcuts or not,...) before it proceed with real installation, but I would like that when user click Install button it automatically sends him to Step 3 and start installing selected applications without any additional user input. Another problem is how to program Progress Bar to work properly...
I hope you understand what kind of application I would like to make.
However, it doesnt need to has all of above features in it. If some of them are too complicated to made (for example, it doesn't need progress bar, maybe for start I should just make that when I click install it just open setup.exe files for checked applications?...)

P.S.: I read some crap about homeworks... Well, actually it isn't homework, it's just fan work of an beginner programmer ;)

What compiler? Operating system? GUI API ? If you are working with MFC then progress bar isn't all that difficult.

Compiler: VC 2008 Express
My operating system : Windows 7
Did you checked screen shots?
