hi All!
I am working with IS 11 premier Basic Msi Project. I am doing the persistence storage using registry during installation.When i am running the setup in maintenance mode ,

i have three options 1. Modify 2.Repair 3.Remove

When i am choosing modify options , user is allowed to change the install Configuarion options and this will be reflected in registry. This is working fine.
I called a CA to update the registry entries.
But the problem is with repair mode , when i reinstalling the product using this option , all the registry entries are washed out.... why is it so...
what will happen to registry entries during repair mode ???

You need to explicitly call that CustomAction to update the registry when in "Repair" mode (condition: _IsMaintenance = "Reinstall") as well, if not it will not run.

Perhaps also see this DevLetter tip, "Installation and Uninstallation Conditions" (http://www.installshield.com/news/newsletter/0212-articles/msiconditions.asp)...
