Hi there,

We use Group Policy to advertise software to our users so that software will only be installed when clicked on shortcut or filetype. In MSI there are three types of sequences: installation, advertisement and administration. My question is how MSI handles the installation when a package is advertised ... I know it runs the advertisement sequence first but does it run installation afterwards when a shortcut is clicked? Im just curious because I'm editing an existing ACDsee 6.0 package wich uses a custom action dll to write some sort of licensing setting somewhere ( not in registry ) wich i cant find. When I install my package by doubleclicking with user interface it installs nicely but when I first advertise it and then install it gives me an licensing error.

Besides that I tried the logging feature for this but because of the advertising commandline it only logs that part. Defintive installation is not being recorded ... or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance,
