The custom actions in my msi don't work, when I do a silent mode installtion with /qb! .

When I perform a repair in "add remove programs" after installation, the CA ist running. Same in normal installation.

There are no questions to be answer during installtion. So the reason for the problem can't be an unvisible dialog-box.

In what way does your custom action not work? Errors out? If so, what is the error message? Not running at all?

What's your custom action's settings?

I could fix it now. The CA was in the "Install UI Sequence". I put it in the "Install Exec Sequence" and the silent installtion works also. Thx.

Right, UI Sequence is skipped when running in silent mode (UILevel property is less than 5).
