Hello everyone,
I am working on packaging an application. It is a setup.exe that calls an msi from the vendor.The MSI can be installed with ISSETUPDRIVEN=1 to the msi.
The Setup up has 4 to 5 dialogs asking for user input, However if I run the MSI by double clicking it there are no dailogs showing up. What could be the reason for this?

I have written a custom action and that checks the domain name and copies the server IP address to a registry location. This should happen before the installation begins. However after incuding this custom action in the MST the application is not installating. No shortcut and ARP entry.
I have kept the CA in Deffered system context and after registry write sequence so that the registry is not overwritten.

What should be done to make it work. Please help.

Quick questions for you -
1. Are you sure that the setup.exe is just acting as to initiate the execution of MSI?
2. When the .msi is run stand-alone, does it install the application correctly?

By default, the MSI is expecting to be run by SETUP.EXE. By double-clicking, you have not passed the ISSETUPDRIVEN property and value to it that fools it into believing that it IS being so run.
