Where to place a custom action

I'm trying to place a custom action (Execute Program From Destination) in the Execute Immediate sequence to kill a process to avoid the "Close the following applications before continuing the install" prompt. The CA only runs on uninstall and the process it kills is one the installation installed. I haven't been successful. Can someone help?

Sequence it before AppSearch with Condition REMOVE="ALL"

That gives me a Internal Error 2732.

I got it to work. Instead of using the custom action (Execute Program From Destination), I used a Wisescript right before AppSearch. Thanks mekaywe.

That brings up the question - Why didn't the built-in CA work?

You had the CA in the wrong position. As ever, AppDeploy has the answers.

You can use a regular custom action if you want. The dialog you want to avoid is shown by InstallValidate action:

So simply move your custom action right before InstallValidate, for example after CostFinalize.

u can try placing it after installfinalize in the InstallExecuteSequence with condition REMOVE="ALL"
