I have a question, i need to create some registry keys on a machine before a major upgrade occurs. Is it possible do this in a Custom Action which occurs before installExecute?

Re: Run Custom Action on Uninstall not on Major Upgrade

We write some registry values via a powershell custom action. We also have a delete registry entries on uninstall custom action.

That delete registry entries custom action was still running on major upgrades with your condition.

Run Custom Action on Uninstall not on Major Upgrade

Hello All

(Installed AND ( REMOVE = "ALL" OR AI_INSTALL_MODE = "Remove" ))

Is this the best condition to use when removing a program from add/remove programs? Not NOT to execute on major upgrades?

Re: Remembering install location after major upgrade

We have that checkbox checked. I'm going to do some further investigation and see why that isn't working. But are there any troubleshooting tips or things i should look for in the log file?

Powershell Custom actions that write to Install Log

Hello All,

Is there a way within a powershell custom action to write to the install log?

I hadn't thought about writing directly to the install log until recently when trying to debug a particular scenario.

TIA.

Re: OT: Where to get Code Signing Certificate?

One extra thing to consider is if you are deploying to systems without internet connection. Some of the 1st-tier certificate providers (Verisign, Thawte) will have their root CA certificates in windows by default. Without having to run windows update to get updated Root CA certs. We used a 3rd-tier ...
