I have an application which i have packaged using Active Setup

Since i have used active setup, the customer have to log off/log on before he starts the application

Im wondring if there is any way to do the following:

IF the user tries to start the application, before he has logged off-i like to show a message telling him to log off before he starts running the program.

This message should only be displayed if the user haven't logged off

Is there any way to implement this
Maybe in a script or something???

Hi,
I thought the idea of Active Setup was to evoke a repair.
I'd use this when I don't have an advertised entry point in to my MSI.
If you have a shortcut, why can't that be advertised?

Well the shortcut can of course be advertised, but this is a native msi package. The policy to the company is not to repackage native msi files.

And if i set the shortcut to advertised in the mst file, the application get repaired every time it starts.
Guess it's bad programming from the developer[8|]

If you advertise the shortcut, it will only self-repair ONCE for each user who logs on to the machine - Not an issue

Dump the active setup in this case and just use an advertised shortcut.

This indicates that it's not a "profile-fix" repair that occurs but a repair loop in some kind.
Look into the event viewer to found out which product, feature,component,resource thats is triggering the repair.
Could be due to permission problems or maybe mixed user/machine resources in one or more component(s).
