Hi all,

I have a .msi file installed using feature component. After the file has been moved during the installation, in the function FirstUIAfter I run the .msi installer silently to install another application from within the installshield process.

My problem is, when I want to uninstall the item installed using this .msi file, if the feature component is not selected in the modify dialog, the .msi file is not installed during the move for me to run the uninstall from it. :mad:

So if I select this feature through code, it installs the .msi file and I can uninstall the application it installs but then the installshield application still thinks it is installed and shows it for removal the next time the modify is selected again.

Is there a registry setting or a way to let installshield know that the item is uninstalled while still installing the .msi for use through code?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance...Sandy
