View Full Version : Error 2753 The File is not marked for installation

11-19-2009, 10:05 AM
I'm currently trying to create a quick patch for my install and when I try to run it I get the Error 2753 error in regards to one of my .exe files.

I understand that it's because it's a file that's associated with a custom action (I launch an .exe at the end of my install). However, from what I've read it's usually because the version that already exists on the machine is the same.

With this one the version of the .exe is higher, so I would assume that the file would just behave like any other file and overwrite the previous one. I guess it's not.

Is there something else I should be doing? I read a link about making a condition for the file but not sure where to put the condition. With the action? (running the exe) or do I put the condition on the component? Thanks for anyones help!
