Installation of software and drivers

The installation I am interested in has 4 parts: 1) VB shell program exe, 2) USB Virtual port driver (.inf file), 3) Flip Installer exe, 4) Boot loader driver derived from the installation of the Flip installer.

A) Can these installations be linked?
B) Can the two drivers be installed even without hardware being hooked up to the system, so that when the hardware is hooked up, the process of loading drivers is fairly transparent to the user?
C) If so, can you direct me to documentation on how this is done.

No problem at all. I am not familiar with Flip (couldn't even find it on Google) but inf files can be installed with InstallAware with very little effort. This is done with the Install Driver command - hit F1 anywhere in the IDE and search for that topic.
The behavior would be the same as if installing the INF manually.

What do you mean by linking the installations?
