Deleting registry entries

I am writing a merge module to install some drivers that accompany our product. The drivers used to be an installshield object when I was using IS6.31, but our new installer is being developed with Developer 7 and I need to convert the object to a merge module.

The problem is that the original object searched and deleted for some files and searched and conditionally deleted some registry entries using InstallScript. These files and registry entries relate to old versions of the drivers and need to be removed.

Is this kind of thing possible/recommended in a merge module?Do I need to use custom actions?

Thanks in advance for any help,

Daniel Mellor

Currently you cannot use InstallScript in merge modules. But you can use tables like AppSearch, RegLocator etc.
