Hi all,

I have an InstallShield app that is called via a setup.exe which calls a Vendor msi.

There are lots of Custom Actions within this Vendor msi but the only ones I am interested in are 3 which call a dll which seems to install 3 other msi's stored with the source files.

The dll has differect functions in it that do various things and obviously one of those functions is to run my other msi's!

I have tried installing these seperately and have taken the Custom Actions out of the Sequence but for some reason when these other msi's are installed outside of the dll function call they don't install properly.

Is there any way I can find out what command line this dll is using to install the other 3 msi's?

Search for DebugView in the forum, it will do what your asking for.

hmmm think I have to post a howto for this as there's so many asking for such debugging ;)

You need to create the REG_DWORD registry value HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer\Debug and set the data to 00000002 before running DebugView
