hi I need some pointers here or anyone who has done similar



on the destination pcs I have one of 2 reg keys settings

hklm\software\aaa\servera value =A
hklm\software\bbb\serverb value =B


now if A equals a value say money1 then I would have to set a variable with a value x to server 1 else set a variable with a value y to server 2

can this be done in an msi

Yes. Use the 'AppSearch' and 'RegLocator' tables to populate two properties with the data from those registry values. Both Wise and InstallShield have a UI into these tables.

Then you can build a 'Set Property' Custom Action conditioned with your requirements.

A step-by-step would rather depend on which authoring tool you're using.

In any event, rather than repeat myself (and others), have a browse of some of the past posts here, or use the 'Search' facility. All the information you need is here somewhere.

Unfortunately, the VM I have with IS on it is tied up with a package. Does the Help file not provide clues?
