I am using Basic MSI Project.
I am trying to install Java Run time envionment1.6update25 from Install shield custom action at Install Finalize exec sequence.
But it is cancelling installation in between.
if i am executing the jre-6u25-windows-i586-s.exe manually it is executing properly.
if i am executing jre-6u25-windows-i586-s.exe at finish button it is working properly.
I just wanna know why at Install Finalize it is not working and how can i make it work at at Install Finalize exec sequence.

any help will be appriciated.

Thanks & Regrads

Are you trying to run this EXE inside an MSI? If so, it cannot work, since the EXE extracts and executes another MSI and Windows Installer can only install one MSI at a time.

Besides any other consideration, you should be customising the install to, for example, disable the automatic updating which JRE sets itself up to do. You can't do that from a bare EXE install.

you can use universal extractor to get the msi if you can't find it in the temp folders.

in windows 7 it goes somewhere other than %temp% i think from memory its %userprofile%\localdata\sun\
