How to you change the file costing table within a MSI ?

I have two files that get installed by the MSI, but I don't want them removed if the user uninstalls the application (they are log files)

Now I remember chatting with someone that suggested changing the file costing of those files (so that my MSI thinks they where installed by another MSI and therefore doesn't delete them) but I can't remember how to do that... Ideas ?

Not sure about the method you are talking about.

however the issue you are facing can be resolved by making the component as "Permanent" which contains the log files. This way even on un-installation the permanent component and the entries of the components wont get un-installed.
