Premanth, if I understand your question correctly, you want to condition a custom action based on UI level. Investigate the UILevel property, which is a built-in Windows Installer property.

Good luck!

I read the post as 2 questions:
- does a CA in the UI sequence if the command-line switch '/QN' is used
No. That's what the 'N' means - no UI
- how do I get a CA which is ONLY in the UI sequence to run if the command-line switch '/QN' is used
Copy it to the EI or ED sequence. If using Wise, it will add a number to the end of the CA name.

What does the CA do? Where it's best placed depends on what it does.

Copy it to the EI or ED sequence.
Just to clarify Ian's abbreviation;
EI = Execute Immediate
ED = Execute Deferred

Having a custom action solely in the InstallUISequance would not run under /qn conditions as the UI sequance is not run at all.

If you wanted this custom action to run under /qn conditions you would have to put it under the InstallExecuteSequance, I looked around at the back end of last year for something similar as I wanted to show a dialog box to the user asking for information during a /qn install, of course this wouldnt work as the UISequance isnt initiated.
