View Full Version : Custom Action During Modification?

01-04-2003, 05:23 PM
As a newbie trying out ISX4 I apologize if this has been covered before but I can't seem to find the answer after searching my heart out.

Is it possible to invoke a Custom Action during Modification (Maintenance Mode)? I want to run a function in a DLL when my user selects to install a particular component after clicking on Change from the Add/Remove Programs dialog (this component presumably wasn't installed originally). I've tried setting the Action to be invoked during installation and after any number of dialogs, but it is never called.

Any info would be appreciated.

OK. Got it! A google search for general MSI info on Custom Actions showed me that I need to set the condition to be executed on UnInstallation AND the event points then change.

Probably we tend to find the answers right after we post because posting occurs when you're tired and frustrated (after a long day of searching). Go to sleep, wake up and you think much more clearly.

Sorry for taking up the bandwidth. :)
