Hi all,

I have an msi created by using InstallSheild 2012. Whenever I run the MSI in Maintenance mode there will be three options Modify, Repair & Remove. By default Modify radio button will selected. I am running the msi in silent mode. So when msi runs in Maintenance mode it is taking Modify as the first priority and it is installing. I want to select the Repair radio button and it should do the repair with silent mode. I don’t want to build the msi using InstallShield, I want to edit this using ORCA. I don’t want to pass "/f" parameter as will. Please suggest me how to select the Repair Radio button by default in Maintenance dialog.

Please help me to resolve this issue.

Add the following private property in property table (It must be there in property table already with 'Modify' value. If so, change the value of the property from 'Modify' to 'Repair') and check.

  • I tried this option but it is not working. It is taking again a Modify option only.
  • Have you tried with MaintenanceMode=Repair property

If you don't want to pass the /f parameter perhaps you can look through the MSI's dialogs, find the one where the maintenance mode is selected, and see if there's a property linked to the radio button you want to select.

You can then set this property in your MSI.
