Problem with file under profiles\Application Data


I have a package that has no shortcuts. There are some HKCU keys and 2 files under profiles\Application Data
I used the active setup to populate the missing HKCU keys for a new user logging in to the wks. Now regarding the two files under Profiles, I isolated them in two separate components with 2 dummy HKCU flag key set as keypath for each components.

I expected the Active Setup to create the two files under Profiles when a new user logged in for the first time but its not working. For testing purposes, I removed a user flag registry key for one of the files and launches repair. The HKCU gets populated back but not the file in Profiles\Application Data.

Any idea someone?

First need to check if those files are coming in admin user when installed, if yes then need to check if active setup is working, if both are yes then there is no doubt that the files should come in respective folder. try msiexec /fua [ProductCode]. Hope you know all this but still suggesting you to check the above.[:)]
