Hi,

Platform: Vista, MSI

I have an issue related to system search feature. My requirement is like this.
I need to get the registry key value during un-installation.

So I created a system search entry for that with root as HKLM and registry key as "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\<MYGUID" and registry value as "DisplayName". I also specified a propety to store the value of this. Let's say "UN_INTSTALL_PRODUCT_NAME"

But during uninstallation that value of [UN_INTSTALL_PRODUCT_NAME] is NULL even if registry key "DisplayName" is present.

I verified that system search feature is working fine during installation.
Do you have any idea ?


Thanks
Jav

Hi,
Is UN_INTSTALL_PRODUCT_NAME added to the secureCustomProperties property?

Thanks.

Log the install (or uninstall) and see if the property is being set (or why not) and if it's being unset somewhere.
