Hi,

I have a vendor MSI (MCAfee virusscan enterprise) of the application, i am editing a copy of the original MSI so that i could take the difference between the original and the edited copy MSI's to create a transform.

The original MSI has three shortcuts, All are left un - advertised.
I edit the copy of original MSI, and advertise the shortcut, and install, then the application self heals.
Could anyone give a solution to the above problem.

Self heals over and over again? Or only the first time?

Use the event viewer to find out which component is broken and is triggering the repair.

Do you really need advertised shortcuts? If the vendor designed the MSI this way, I'd tend to leave it as it is - might be more trouble than it's worth?

That's nice... but it was event-id 1004 that I had in mind (just after your MSI self-repairs).

The whole idea with advertise is to allow a self-repair, it that's not want you want leave the shortcuts as they are.

Self repair is happening each time the shortcut is launched. This is my concern, also self repair takes lot of time.. sometimes even hanging the system

Hi Charan.

AngelD and I have both already tried to ask this question, but I'm not sure we've received a clear answer...

Why do you want to make the "shortcuts" advertised? What's wrong with the "unadvertised" shortcuts?

If you would like to modify the McAfee vendor MSI I would use FramePkg which is used to modify the installation behaviour.

As per policy, we are to advertise shortcut in the customization.
