Adobe Indesign CS5 7.0 - ARP Remove button still active

A remove button for Adobe Indesign is still active in ARP even though ARPNOREMOVE =1 property set in property table. Has anyone else come across this?

The property may well be present (presumably in a transform) but does it get applied? A verbose log of the install will confirm either way.

Thanks VBSCab, it is in a transform, my verbose log states that it has been applied along with the ARPNOMODIFY and ARPNOREPAIR properties. I have noticed that other issues have not been able to be applied by transform and have had to create a secondary msi to apply some registry settings to remove dialog box from Adobe Bridge. Thing is, i dont see how i could suppress this remove button via secondary msi.

Ok, it also has an ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT=1 property so is getting set by the registry under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall but that reg key says value is also =1, so i may have to create custom action in secondary msi. Application does not self repair...

If ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT has a value (any value will do - even setting it to '0' will trigger the behaviour), then the app shouldn't even appear in ARP so clearly something's wrong with the transform. Is InDesign one of those treasured Adobe apps which has a specific customisation tool for creating MSTs?

For the Bridge stuff, did you read the 'Package KB' for CS4? There's probably good reason to assume that 5 will be configured the same. Worth a go, anyway...

Yes it is. The ARP control panel applet checks for app info from windows installer under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall. The fact that this is set to ARPNOREMOVE=1 there is whats puzzling

Sorted, there was a second GUID under that reg key which had keys for norepair and nomodify but none for noremove so that was it. Thanks all for input
