Hi guys,
I'm trying to silently install a patch however I think that because a custom action "DLLWrapCleanup" is run earlier in the installexecute sequence than in the installUI sequence, the later custom actions are prevented from running properly during the silent install. Is there anyway to either change the sequence of the custom actions in a patch? I investigated using vbscript sendkeys to automate the install (because its only a matter of clicking next, next, next, finish) however in order to do this I need to bring the dialog into focus using the AppActivate object and this specifies the dialogs using their title, unfortunatly some of the dialog boxes have the same title meaning it would click "cancel" on the progress dialog. Even if i could get this working it very messy. Can anyone suggest another way? This problem is driving me nuts.

What packaging utility are you using? Custom Actions can be run at any point during the install so it's just a matter of editing your MSI Script, but without the tool you're using I can't give details.
