I have a question guys

I need to create an application package(adobe) which set the installdir to %SYSTEMDRIVE\Apps\Adobe\Acrobat8.0.
I use the Adobe Customasatino wizard tool to create the mst.
After this i open the created mst file in Wise. Creating a custom action to set the installdir to to %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Apps\Adobe\Acrobat 8.0

When i run the cmd line: msiexec /i msi /qb! TRANSFORMS=transformsfile ALLUSERS=2 (The installdir is set correctly but if i add the parameteres /qb! to my installationstring my installdir will be c:\programfiles\adobe....


Why does this happend?

Because you added the set directory or property custom action in ui sequence (InstallUISequence), try InstallExecuteSequence instead.

However I would do this in InstEd (or ORCA) instead as wise adds more junk then needed.
Why not change the Directory_Parent column value for the Adobe directory to point to "Apps" instead?

You should also set the ALLUSERS property to 1 instead.

Can you please explain some more AngelD. Thx for the help though
You are absoultly right. The custom action is in uisequence instad of Installexecutesequence.
Is this becaues i set the customaction (Set_Installdir) to be type 51?

Figures it out If i set the custom action to Normal Execute Immediate/Deferred instead of normal execute it will be correctly listed under Installexecutesequense.
