I am quite new to developing the installations. I am currently working on a basic MSI project that is supposed to create a master installer which will install/uninstall multiple products. Some of the producst have setup.exe while some have msi files. While using Custom Action to launch the installation setups, I ran into following problems -

1. When I launch setup.exe, the installation goes through file in debug mode. :) However, I get the errors if I run the MSI directly. :confused: Please see the attached doc file.

2. When I use MSI, the installation doesn't happen in debug or run mode. :( The setup gets terminated. I will put the log file if possible for the same if anyone would like to have a look at it.
