Thanks for your time,
Sahil.

For the general idea, please see this InstallShield newsletter tip: http://www.installshield.com/news/newsletter/0212-articles/msiconditions.asp.

For information about feature-selection conditions, please also see the MSI Help Library topic "Conditional Statement Syntax".

The MSI Help Library page "Examples of Conditional Statement Syntax" gives this example:

Run action only if the feature will be uninstalled.

(&FeatureName=2) AND (!FeatureName=3)
