CA failed due to syntax error then how you install that application without opening MSI?

  • What application? What is the text of the Custom Action you have right now?
  • The app is broken. You need to fix the custom action or take it out if you want to install the MSI.
    People here can help with code but you need to share it first.
  • Perhaps the question should be: How to extract files from a MSI?
  • This question was asked to my friend in an interview. Even I was shocked.. So thought of asking the expertise.
  • You cant install it, you (always) need to run the MSI, the next best thing is to kill off the CA like EdT mentioned with a transform.

    Guess you can try and unpack it for an Administrative install, but ive never tried that with a fubar'd CA - this will get you the gubbins from inside the MSI.

Is that a serious question? Do you think someone could wave a magic wand at it to make it work?!? Jeez Louise...!!
