In doing something is used for saying that as a result of doing one thing (A), you also do/did something else (B).

In trying to lift the weight (A), I injured my back (B).

In passing my drivers test (A), I am now licensed (B).

etc...

Other than that, the sentences have the exact same meaning. They're just worded differently.
