View Full Version : EXE Custom Action Problems

02-14-2005, 12:20 PM
I am trying to install JRE through a custom action. I have tried quite a few things ( most of them mentioned in the article http://community.installshield.com/archive/index.php?t-125789.html). But no success. Where could I be going wrong. Is there any better way to do it.

One of my attempts is attached as a screenshot(test.jpg). I have tried extracting the MSI and launching it, but I am getting errors.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

JRE is an MSI based install. You are calling this CA in the execute sequence of your MSI install. There is a mutex that only allows one execute sequence at a time so therefore this will not work.

Thanks Chris.
I am able to launch the JRE installation in Silent Mode in the Install UI Sequence. I have made it an Immediate Execution CA and placed it after ExecuteAction.. However, it still runs during the start of the installation where as I would like it to launch at end... Is there any way out
