I have a problem that I'd like to install file and use it as part of a CA, but before the registry is written. Initially this seemed easy enough by sequencing the CA within the InstallExecute sequence somewhere between InstallFiles and WriteRegistryValues, but in this scenario the CA tries to execute on the Client side, but the actual files aren't available until the Server side reaches the InstallFiles action. The obvious alternative I could think of was to execute my CA with the 'Commit' attribute, but this causes it to run after the registry values are written... which is too late.
Has anyone got experience of executing a CA after the fiels are copied, but before the registry is written?
