Hi, in which tables should i look for any actions or similiar that executes an executable?
setupcapture show a executable and logfiles for visual 2005 c++ redistibutable, and im just playing around learning new stuff. Lets say i wanna rip out everything involving 2005 c++ redistributable from my installation package, and instead add the real msi installer from microsoft for the c++-bit.

I know which files and registy values i need to clean from installation expert, but i need to rip out any data involving this executable from the tables-where should i begin to look ? :)

The CustomAction table is the place to look. If you edit the table directly, remember you'll have to remove the associated row(s) from one or more of the sequence tables, too.

In most vendor msi's the custom action name will refer to vc++ redist..also you can generate the log file and find the custom action which triggers the installation of vc++ redist....

and will be better to comment the custom action by placing zero in the contion column InstallUI sequence/InstallExecute sequence table.

You can generate a log file by adding the "/L" switch to the msiexec argument.
msiexec /i <path to .msi> /L*v C:\install.log
