why do you want to add .msi to binary table ?

i think you are using installshield, click on direct editor and you will see all the tables.

Hi Result,

Have you set conditions on your custom actions so that the uninstall only runs when the MSi is uninstalled? You should set the condition on the custom action to Installed (though there are many ways of doing this, this is the simplest).

If you've already done this, then do an install with a verbose log file (msiexec.exe /i %PATHTOMSI% /L*v c:\test.log) and search for your custom actions, if you can find your uninstall custom action then check the conditions. If you are still gettign the error you detailed in your post then the log file should help isolate what is causing that error.

Or Bheers may have a better answer for you :) Hope I've been of some help.

Rgds

HI Paul ,
THank you for your quick reply. I'm new to install shield 10.5. My condition to install custom action was: NOT Installed AND NOT REMOVE="ALL" and for uninstall: REMOVE=ALL. Tell me more about verbose log file. where should I start from. I did not try this. I have used msiexec.exe /i in my sms script but not in install shield. Please let me know as soon as possible.
THanks again .

here are the command line switches to be used with the msiexec

MSIEXEC Command Line Switches

try this for getting the verbose log.


msiexec /l*v "c:\log.log" /i <path to your msi>

this command puts the log file in c:\


does the install work fine by itself without any problems with the command line options you specified

NOT Installed AND REMOVE<>"ALL"
ALLusers ????? it should Be ALLUSERS.
ALLUSERS=[ALLUSERS] does this one work ?

does the msi that you are trying to insert into another msi , installs to a machine with out any errors by itself with being added as nested in another msi with the command line options you used
