We've got a custom transfrom built with CIW for Access 2003 SP1. (Actually, for each of the 2003 products...)

Now I'm trying to set up a simple VBS script , which is installed in the "Program Files\Microsoft Office" directory by the transform, and set to run in the transform like this:

  • run from <System> directory
  • command line: wscript.exe "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Record_Install.vbs" "(other command line arguments)"
  • "Run this program only once per machine"
  • "Run this program only the first time the product is installed"

The problem is, the install doesn't seem to be running the script at all, and there are no error messages. I've put a pop-up message box in the script , but it never shows. I did a full log of the Windows Installer installation (/l*v path\to\logfile.txt), and it shows the following:

OCW_CHILD_INSTALL_1_ARGS = wscript.exe "C:\Program Files..."
<-- this is the custom action for my script

Skipping action: OCW_CHILD_INSTALL_1 (condition is false)
<-- this shows that it didn't run it!

The way these custom actions run here is pretty confusing, and I'm very comfortable with Windows Installer technology... Can anyone answer why it's skipping the custom action, or why there's no error message? Any tips on getting my script to run correctly? TIA--
