View Full Version : installer works on XP but fails on Windows7

12-13-2009, 10:22 PM
I have a MSI installer, that has been working for some time now. This installer works fine on XP but fails to install correctly on Windows7. Now, my msi actually call's another msi by using a custom action and fails to install the application in this second msi.

Calling method is "msiexec.exe /i "MeSecondOne.msi" /qn"

Error message back (using /vl when installing) is:
CustomAction MeSecondOne returned actual error code 1603 but will be translated to success due to continue marking
Action ended 12:18:03: MeSecondOne. Return value 1.

Any help would be great.

A couple of quick things...

What did error code 1603 turn out to be?
Have you tried running the main MSI as Administrator? (right click on the .exe or .msi and select run as administrator)
Have you tried manually running the second MSI to see what happens?
