Has anyone tested extensively on Windows Vista?
So far it seems that the install/uninstall of my product built with IS 10.5 works better than the install/uninstall of my product build with IS 12.

I probably won't do serious Vista testing until we get to RC1 or so. I'm assuming you have alot of InstallScript custom actions based on what your saying though. That said, get all of your CA's ported over to the MSI Type1 CA style and test your deferred CA's by advertising the package before installing it and you should be good to go and avoid and problems.

The way I see it, by the time Vista hits the scene early next year I'll have a few months before I really have to start supporting it and we'll be on InstallShield 13 by then and any bugs in IS12 ( they are testing against CTP of course... ) should be fixed.
