How to create a single installer for driver and application?

I have a Windows Forms application that requires a WinUSB driver. I have installers for both. I have been asked by a client to create a single installer. Is it possible to create a single installer that can install the driver and then the application?

Thanks in advance.

What kind of installer? If you built MSI installers with WiX, it is rather simple to merge two into one.

There are several ways to approach this, but probably the simplest is to create a MSBuild Bootstrapper:

The bootstrapper is a single setup.exe file that will run both installer in the sequence you decide.
