Mathcad 14.0 - Msi executing within MSI

I am trying to install Mathcad application using an MSI. This msi inturn installs Mathcad Help.msi and Mathcad Resource Centre.msi using custom action. The custom action is not a nested MSI custom action.

- Mathcad Help.msi and Mathcad Resource Centre.msi execution happens fine when installled in the UI mode.

I am not able to executed the same MSI's during silent installation.

Please let me know ur suggestions.

Aneeth,

1) Are the Custom actions that execute the nested MSI's in both the InstallUISequence and the InstallExecuteSequence?
2) Do the nested MSIs themselves get executed with or without UI?
3) Nested MSIs are a really bad idea, but OK, since it seems to be a vendor MSI... Still if all it does is chain the installs, you might want to think about using your own chaining mechanism

1) "Internal error 2732 Directory Manager not initialized."
2) I changed the sequence then recieved the error "Another installation is in progress"


Try Scheduling the install in immediate context, after InstallFinalize

I tried creating a Nested MSI but am not sure how to. It keeps throwing the error "The system cannot find the file specified." .
Log the installation, (msiexec /LV*) and look where the error occurs, this will narrow the search for the problem.

Hi an33th

I had the same problem before some DO ACTION is changing the value of my FEATURES installlevel during UI mode that's why it is installing properly while in quiet mode it is not. Best solution i could give you is check the logfile and compare the logfile of full UI mode and silent mode and see the changes. Most probably some property changes. Hope this helps![:)]

The custom actions that execute the MSI's were only part of InstallUISequence.

I tried including a logic to execute it in the InstallExecuteSequence unsuccessfully.

I got the following error messages after some tries,
1) "Internal error 2732 Directory Manager not initialized."
2) I changed the sequence then recieved the error "Another installation is in progress"

The nested MSI's work fine.
