Hello,

There is no general code, but this is an example

If condition = false then
WSCRIPT.QUIT
else
....
end if

also the same for wscript.sleep

Voilà ...

The issue is that when running a VBScript embedded inside Windows Installer, you're not running it from the Windows Scripting Host engine, so the WScript.* objects are not available.

There are two solutions:

1.) Don't use WScript objects.

In this case, you could wrap the entire script in a 'Main' subroutine, and do an "Exit Sub" when you want to quit, like so:


'start program
Main

'when Main subroutine ends, so does the script

Sub Main
'all your code goes here
If SOMETHING_IS_WRONG Then
Exit Sub
End If
End Sub

'end of the file


2.) If you need to use WScript objects, run the script from an installed file and create a custom action with a command line using the WSH interpretter like this:


[SystemFolder]wscript.exe //B "[scriptname.vbs]"


Hope that helps...
