Question What differences are there between SilentInstall and SetSilent

Hey guys,
I've been noticing that very occasionally (3-5 times per 30) on vista when I launch installer1 from the command line and use the SetSilent method in the installer it will throw a "NSIS Error Launching Installer" when I execute installer2 from inside installer1(that uses SilenInstall). Installer1 installs properly, but installer2 doesn't launch.

On the other hand, if installer1 is set to SilentInstall, I've ran it 120+ times with no sign of the error from installer2.

Question: How does SilentInstall and SetSilent differ from each other and does NSIS handle them differently? Also, Why would this only occur on vista(I've set the RequestLevel correctly in both installers)?

They don't differ by much. It's just a question of when the installer will decide it's silent.

Please include a complete example that can be used to reproduce this issue.
