I'm building a couple of MSIs that need to run a .vbs after all the files are installed/copied.

When the MSI is run normally, it works fine.

If I do a:
msiexec -i "\\server\apps\winstall\dat\Messaging Client(s)\gaim\2.0B3\gaim.msi" /qn REINSTALLMODE=vamus

when theres an older version of Gaim (in this case) on the machine, the Custom Action fails to run.
I have it set to run in the Install Exec sequence, After InstallFinalize
Install Exec Condition is "NOT Installed OR MaintenanceMode="Modify""

I also have this problem with another MSI

I'm probably missing something obvious, but is there a way to get the Custom Actions to run when the MSI is run in Modify mode?

Hi ,

For a custom action to run at both installation and during maintenance you can use " NOT REMOVE " as condition .
" Action that runs during install and reinstall only ".

NB: Do not use 'v' in vamus option for the first installation of an application or feature .

Cheers !!
