Hi All

I have an MSI that i have made with wise and have a problem with some dlls registering after an upgrade install.

  • If I run the install on a clean machine it works fine
  • If I do an upgrade from a previous install then the dlls do not register correclty
  • If I do an upgrade and then a repair it works fine.

If i do the upgrade and then use regsrv32 on the dlls it will work correctly.

The problem dlls were registerd in a previous directory but get removed and reinstalled with the new install.

Has any one had a simmilar problem if so how did you fix it?

Or can you call a script from the installer to register the files?

Thanks for you help

Remove all DLL registration information for the problem DLLs then I take the problem DLLs registration information and make a reg file. I then import the reg file into Wise but disable converting the registry entries into advertising information. This usually fixes my registration issues though you do sacrifice some of the MSI self healing in the process.

What is the best way to to get all the registration information for the dlls?

Do i have to export this from the registry? If so i how do i find the correct details in the registry?
