Hey guys,
Can someone help me by explaining the custom action condition : NOT PATCH.
I can make out the meaning of other CA conditions but this one really doesnt make any sense to me. I just wanna know when n where this is to be used.

I would guess that the action will not run when the application is patched via an MSP.

Thanks for tat Paul.. i guess u r right.. I have been thinking that the patch runs as an separete install ; completely independent of the MSI.. i just did some research and found that all the actions in the MSI(turning out to be true) also runs when the patch is installed.. Someone can correct me if i am wrong in it...
Thanks again.

When a patch is installed to an already installed MSI the MSI will be re-installed with the embedded transform(s) stored in the MSP.
So the MSI will have to be accessable during this task.
