Files installing conditionally, but MM's always
Posted 06 February 2003 - 18:09
The problem is I cannot apply the same conditions to merge modules. And since I can't get features themselves to install conditionally, ALL ther merge modules install no matter what. I saw exclusions for merge modules, but they don't seem to be the same as conditions. Any ideas or suggestion on how to get the proper merge modules installing?

MSI (s) (A4:2C): Executing op: ActionStart(Name=StopServices,Description=Stopping services,Template=Service: )
Action 230:31: StopServices. Stopping services
MSI (s) (A4:2C): Executing op: ProgressTotal(Total=2,Type=1,ByteEquivalent=1300000)
MSI (s) (A4:2C): Executing op: ServiceControl(,,Action=2,Wait=-2147483648,)
I noticed there is not Name= parameter in the ServiceControl(). Is this the problem? Also it looks like it's trying to do a stop... When I check out the generated .msi I can see there are two entries in ServiceControl and ServiceInstall tables: SqlAgent.C4D32C83_C28D_4329_A829_31C4C6034F59
But at the point where the error occurs, there are no files yet installed and no services installed/registered.
Has anyone seen anything like this before? Does anyone have any advice or ideas? If I had the time to do the setup again I'd probably do it differently, but time is a fickle thing...

components that should be installed set to Installed:
Absent; Request: Local; Action: Local. However there
are no File: entries in the log file. Something is out of
order. Nothing has changed file-wise, and all the files
are there in the File table. How would I go about
solving/debugging this problem?
