hello

in my install project, my use repair as reinstall the whole project.
but this is functioning weird.

when i repair, key files are not reinstalled. i need to reinstall at least twice to copy some key files. but it does not recover all the key files.

i thought this key file is the "key" during repair and this should always be copied no matter what.

i think something is missing in my project and i can not find what that is. what am i missing here???

HAve a look at your REINSTALL setttings.

If you key file needs repairing, then the files under this will be reparied or replaced.

Try running your isntall with log mode to see what is happening. ALso you can check the Windows Even Viewer for some details too.

Your question may be involving. Perhaps, you want to use mySupport (http://mysupport.installshield.com/).
