    WaitForSingleObject() not waiting for setup.exe to exit(IS2016 SP2)

    Hi Team.

    Previously, I am used IS2014 Professional.
    The WaitForSingleObject() is waiting for setup.exe to exit. (working)

    After that,
    I have upgraded from IS2014 Professional to IS2016 SP2 Professional. (The .ism file has been upgraded automatically when open the file in IS2016 SP2 & build installer)
    The WaitForSingleObject() is not waiting for setup.exe to exit (not working)

    The WaitForSingleObject() is Microsoft API.
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...(v=vs.85).aspx

    Could you please check on this, This issue has blocked my work.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks!

    I am having the same experience using WaitForSingleObject() on a setup.exe built with Installshield 2016 SP2. I wonder if this is fixed in 2018.

    I had the same problem some time ago after updating to IS2016

    the clone_wait parameter fixed it in my case

    /clone_wait -- InstallScript -- This parameter indicates that the original setup should wait for the cloned setup process to complete before exiting.

    based on documentation. Clone_Wait for InstallSctipt. I am using BASIC MSI project.

    please let me know, is it working for Basic MSI project.
