How to configure deployed MSI application to delete file without trigger self repair upon shortcut launch.
Im modifying an application to delete a exisiting file and dropped new config file.
Since this was already deployed when I delete the file it will trigger self repair. How I'm going to suppress self repair when I delete the file?
Open for suggestions.

If you're creating a new MSI or creating a script to overwrite an existing file, you shouldn't have to worry. Self heal would only get started if the new file has an older timestamp or version number than what's in the original package. Since you'll most likely have a file that is the same or newer, it should be fine to drop the new file in place and not worry about it.
