View Full Version : msiexec /a Does Not Uncompress All Files

01-11-2005, 03:16 PM
When I use the msiexec /a command to uncompress a .msi not all the files are extracted.

I figured out that that this occurs when the Feature's Install Level is set to 0. Even if the Condition is set up to evaluate to True this will still happen.

However, if I go through the Release Wizard and build the project as uncompressed all the files are correctly in their place.

Is there any way to use the misexec /a command on a compressed .msi to extract these files? Any known Custom Actions I can insert, etc?
