View Full Version : Problem in Uninstallation

04-10-2009, 02:09 AM
Hi Guys
I am new to install shield, i just started working on it.
I was trying to learn it by my own, but facing some difficulty in uninstalling the product.
I want to make a simple project which only make keys and Value Name in the registry and when i remove that, it will automatically delete the Value Name not the Key. But i am unable to do that :o . Now i will explain more about the project ->
I made a Basic MSI Project ( i am not sure whether it is right choice or not).
In InstallScript i made 2 functions -> RegisterKeys and DeleteKeys
I made 2 Custom Actions -> RegisterKeysAction and DeleteKeyActions
i set the Install Exec Sequence of RegisterKeysAction to "After Installvalidate"
and of DeleteKeyActions to "After RemoveRegistryValues".
But when ever i am installing or uninstalling that, both my functions are running first DeleteKeyActions and then RegisterKeysAction. I want to run deleteKeyActions only when uninstallation.

Please help me in to resolve that issue.

To control your functions, you have to code them in installscript events.
These events are not available in a "Basic MSI" project. You should either choose Installscript or Installscript MSI project before you start working.

There you can invoke these functions on particular uninstall event(OnUninstall()).

According to vishnu point of view is incorrect.

For DeleteKeyActions custom action set condition as REMOVE=ALL
