I am attempting an installation that contains a vbs script that modifies a table entry in the msi file. (modifies whether or not the user can install to a specific directory) Might anyone suggest at what point during installation my script can modify the msi table? I have it specified to run before the initialization section in the custom action section in my installshield 11.5 express project environment.

My second question is.. how can I reference and modify the installation if it is on a cd? Meaning.. if my installation is on a cd, how can I modifiy its table entries? Do I reference the installation through ram and alter it at runtime,, or do I have to copy the entire installation to a temporary folder alter it there and then re-run it?


Thanks
