Hi there,

just wondering if it's possible to use some VB in a CA to repair an instance of MSOffice on a client's PC?

Hi Johnny.. unfortunately I don't think this is possible.

the Msi database access functions (eg. Installer.OpenDatabase, MSIDatabase.OpenView etc) cannot be used at runtime and will fail if you try to.

In order to do this you will need to run a standalone application to invoke these functions before running your install.
