Hi Folks,

Does anyone know how to disable a package's repairing functionality in InstallShield DevStudio 9? Thanks a bunch.

Why on earth would you want to do that? Something tells me you're taking a bad direction to resolve an issue. Back to the question. Why do you want to disable self repair?

I know that it's a little out there to do, but i have packages that don't install any files locally, just setup registry components for the application, and shortcuts. I have been running into an issue with the package trying to self-repair itself.

But as of now i've removed the HKCU registry entries that were captured and it looks like my issue is for the most part resolved.

Hi Potatoes,

Its as easy as dont set the keypath to any of the components.If you do not want only a prticular resource not to repair then move that component to a new feature.

Yeah i thought maybe there was a different way, perhaps a preference setting or something to the likes.
