Does anyone know if there is a way to create/use a Custom Action that, during the install will query the running installation's File table, grab FileName, FileSize, and Version, then spit it to a text file?

Any help, tips, guidance would be more than greatly appreciated!

Not sure why you would want to do this at install time (instead of build time) but in my article at http://www.installsi...stBox/index.htm theres sample code showing how to read entries from a table.

Alternatively, if you want to do it after build but before install time, you could sue one of the tools listed under "List Contents of InstallShield Project" or "MSI Database Viewers, Editors, Validators, Extractor" at http://www.installsi...en/msi/tips.htm
