Code for running commands one after other

I need an if code in shell script where it should continue to further commands after succesfully installing the executable file.

i.e. /run installer is continuing but in the middle it executes further commands like "cp /root/user which were given after /run installer.

I want /runinstaller to complete its process and after its done it should go further commands

Can you elaborate with the exact sequence of commands. Could not deduce from above explanation.

a) cd /root/user/dir/sd/disk
./runInstaller -silent -responseFile

b) cd /root1/user1
cp /root/user/dir/sd/disk/ram.txt
now b) executes before a) is successfully done.

so I want b) to start only after successfull completion of a)

What about:

/run installer && cp /root/user && next command && last command

I am doing this in a script...there are like 100 commands after that installation file...and 100 commands are dependant on the installation directory

---------- Post updated at 05:08 PM ---------- Previous update was at 03:46 PM ----------

I need code which lets the following commands to run only after the present command is completely done successfully as described above.
