Ok i might have not been clear with my question.. Sorry about that.. let me rephrase it..

Lets say i have an advertised shortcut.. And one of the files in the key path has been deleted... Now when the shortcut is launched, the MSI will self heal to put the file back.. This self heal shows up the progress bar.. i was referring to this part, if there was a way to make this progress bar silent and not visible to the user.

No, I don't think it's possible - what would you rather have, an hourglass?

I would prefer no prompts at all.. Similar to a silent MSI installation..

Basically the intent is to hide any kind of repair visibility to the user..

If ther is no Progress bar showing off whats happening.
The user will not know it and may think that application is not working

Repair the MSI silently.. then you dont see any self healingCan we be clear here? The OP was asking about self-healing, the mechanism where the absence of a key file/registry entry automatically kicks off the repair process. I suspect you're talking about a user-driven repair, using the command line switch '/F' which can (I think!) be silenced. The former CANNOT be made silent, unless you fancy creating a whole new interface to the Windows Installer engine.
