I am a newbie to custom actions.

I am trying to create a custom action that will call vbscript. I am using orca editor to work with MSI's.

Please help me out in finding some examples/ websites explaing this process.

Thanks in Advance.

simply write your script and then place it into a custom action of the required type.

if it is a simple VBS string use CA Type 38. if it is a VBS File that was installed with the application use CA Type 22. if it is a VBS string stored in the property table use CA Type 54....

the MSI Help, .CHM, file is always a good starting point for additional information....

good luck !
