AssemblyInstaller myAssemblyInstaller1 = new AssemblyInstaller();
InstallerCollection myInstallerCollection1 = myAssemblyInstaller1.Installers;
// 'myAssemblyInstaller' is an installer of type 'AssemblyInstaller'.
myInstallerCollection1.Add(myAssemblyInstaller);

Installer myInstaller1 = myAssemblyInstaller.Parent;
Console.WriteLine("Parent of myAssembly : {0}", myInstaller1.ToString());
