MM Custom Action cant reference MSI Property
Posted 16 November 2004 - 15:06
Basically I am looking for a way to pass information to and from merge module defined custom actions into parent MSIs. I was hopping to use properties to do this, but it appears that this might be a problem. Anyone have any ideas?
BTW - I controll both the merge module and the parent MSI. I'm really trying to do this for time/labor savings, where I can work on one part and my buddy can work on the other part without us stepping on each other.

I've seen this happening with properties that were listed in the Properties table, although properties that were generated by AppSearch appear to be excluded.
I suggest to open the final MSI in Orca and see what properties actually exist at startup. Or run an install with a full log, the end of the log lists all properties with their final values.

I accidentally set the one CA (in the merge module) to deferred. Setting that back to immediate execution fixed it right up.
