Hello, I've build a MSI with Installshield and installed it on my client.

After that, when I run the same MSI again, it reinstalls and says "Resuming Installashield wizard...".

I can't find out why there is no maintenance dialog with the Repair/Modify/Remove options?

It seems like it does not recognize that this MSI is already installed.

Can anybody help me please?

Is your previous attempt of installation suspended in between? FYI.. Resuming InstallShield Wizard is part of Maintenance only..

If your MSI fails to install then it will restart installation. Or maybe the product is not getting registered.

The application log should offer more details (eventvwr.exe) but failing that you may need to enable logging so you can get more detail on the failure. See http://www.itninja.com/question/how-do-i-enable-windows-installer-logging
