Funnily enough you don't need VBScript custom actions to do the following:

Deleting files/folders during uninstallation. RemoveFile table
Start/Stop services ServiceControl table
Self registering a file File table

as the logic is already built into MSI's!

"Funnily"?? [&:]

MSI's can be surprising in regard to what the can, and can't do. If you're looking for a reference, read the documentaiton on all those obscure tables. MS documents it HERE.

Ah... A result of Divine Inspiration.

Remember, friends don't let friends package drunk. AcrobatReaderWithPlayboyScreensaver.msi only seems like a good idea for a short time.
