could you provide us with the complete error message for the msi, i.e the whole 1702 message, as well as the exact type of the custom action you made to run the script and its exact scheduling (Before this action or after that one)? Last but not least the contents of your script...

This is some Top and bottom portion of the Msi Scriptin where i added the VB script.

Excute Immediate mode:
Call VBScript From Installatiion Function Finalize (Action)
If Not installed AND WISEDELAYEDREBOT then

Error Message:
Error 1720: There is a Problem with this windows Installer package. A script required for this install to complete could not be run. contact your suport personnel or package vendor.

Vb script Message:
"Quite all applications before install"

2 things to check:

1) is the vbs present with the other source files of the installer where the MSI is supposed to run it from?
2) does the vbs contain the Finalize function that you're telling the MSI to call?

if this doesn't point to a solution,could you just paste the FULL vbs code for the CA? Also you could perhaps log the install (add /L*V C:\Temp\MyLog.log to the command line) and post the results here.
