My application name is Crsytal Reports 9.0 . This is an extracted MSI. I have created MST for this. I need to suppress one registration wizard (regwiz.exe). After installing the application I am able to launch the registration wizard from Help menu of application shortcut. But I need to suppress this registration wizard.
In Crystal Reports 11.0 I have given one property i.e,. INSTALLSWITCH=Client to suppress this registration wizard. It wasworking fine for this application.

I applied the same thing in Crystal Reports 9.0 but it is not working.

Can any body help on this.

Not entirely sure what you mean but in version I removed the custom action -


from the installExecuteSequence and removed the shortcut.


If you want to get rid of the file completely then remove the component regwiz.exe.6F2B3983_59B8_11D3_B360_00A0C9DA500E

Obviously all with the aid of a transform and not editing the vendor msi direct

Just because CR 11.0 works by setting the property INSTALLSWITCH=Client it doesn't mean v9 will. In 11.0 I'm guessing that the component or custom action have a condition on them which relates to the property. But In v9 there are no such conditions.

I commented teh custom action related to regwiz. I removed the shortcut from the application. Still I am getting the registration window from the Help menu of the main shortcut.
If I remove the component related to regwiz then it is not showing this wizard. But this component related to merge module. As per the standard we shouldn't remove the merge module related files and registreis.
Is there any other solution for this.

As per the standard we shouldn't remove the merge module related files and registreis.What standard? Whether a component is in a merge module or not, it makes no difference. If you don't want something to be installed, don't install it!
