Capture the INSTALLFOLDER in your Bundle on the options dialog, then pass it in to both your MSI and EXE package.  There is no variable feedback from a MSI back to its parent bundle.

I would like to pass INSTALLFOLDER from an <MsiPackage> to the following <ExePackage> in the Chain.  I tried passing [INSTALLFOLDER] via InstallCommand on the ExePackage but it's blank since the MSI installation has already been completed.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
