I want to check for a specific registry key (pre requisite) and if that key is present then I want to install the application package. I want to check that registry key thru Wise.How can we do that?

You will have to do this as a custom action. You can use WiseScript or VBS. If you don't know VBS, have a look at the Wise script editor- it is pretty powerful and easy to use.

Not the Windows Installer Editor, the Wise Script Editor. You'll be able to save the WiseScript as an EXE that runs as a custom action- in fact, I think there is a "Run WiseScript From Installatino" action that will take you right into the editor from within the Windows Installer Editor (MSI Script View).

Wait just a minute.

Grace,

Wise?

InstallMaster, WFWI, Package Studio?

If this is an MSI Development then it is much more native to use the system Search and a Launch Condition
