Hi ,
i m using a Basic MSI project. I hav a custom action which is executed always except during uninstallation. Can any one tell me wat kinda UIconditional and Execute Condition i should use to achieve this.
i hav used UILevel's as 5 and 2 to accomplish this. however it is not executing the custom action in passive installation.

PS: this custom action should execute during Normal installation,maintenance installation, silent installation and passive installation.

Are you using InstallShield 12 Professional or Premier Edition? If so, here (http://community.installshield.com/forumdisplay.php?f=211) is the designated forum.

You will want to read up on Installation and Uninstallation Conditions (http://www.macrovision.com/company/news/newsletter/tips/msiconditions.shtml) by Robert Dickau.

BTW, what's do you mean by passive installation?

Thank u for the response. the link Installation and Uninstallation Conditionswas very useful. i had used the similar condition to fix that issue.

passive installation: is very much similar to silent however with little user interaction. the welcome and progress screens are displayed in this case:)
