Base Package needs installing before extension package?

Hi Thee, was wondering if someone could help me out with a packaging problem I am having...


I have created a base application, which has a limited set of functionality.  Additionally i have developed extension package the completed the application.  This is so we can have our application installed in GE/PE orgs, whilst offering a more comprehensive application to DE/UE/EE customers.


I have everything setup, packaged, unit tested etc... The install procedure works fine if I install the base package first then the extension, but it someone wants to install the full version straight away the following happens;


Package install error

There are problems that prevent this package from being installed.

A required package is missing         
Package "base xxx", Version 1.2 or later must be installed first.


Is there a way round this, or will I have to have every customer install both packages?  Would be a shame not to have a Get it Now button on my AppExchange listing because of this!

Hi Chris,

I am having the same issue with my extension package, it's asking for the base package during the installation. May I ask how you resolved the issue?
