Have created a basic msi to copy a file (uniclass.bat) to c:\program files (x86)\uniclass. Now all I want to do is run the batch file. Have created a custom action but cannot get it to work. From what I have said what needs to go in the filenameandcommand line field and does anything have to go in the Install Exec sequence field. If this is all basic stuff I apologise but I've just been given the software and have 100+ apps to install with it (you shall be hearing alot more from me as my support is pretty naff).
Thanks:confused:
