Created: 07 Oct 2013 | 3 comments

Is there a way to disable/remove the "Repair installation" so it doesn't prompt this window during the reinstallation?

Have you tried adding ARPNOREPAIR=1 to the property table via a transform?

This is the standard technique for disabling the repair option on an MSI, but of course it presumes that Adobe have followed all the MSI rules, and we know from experience that that is not one of their strong points!

@EDT: Isnt ARPNOREPAIR property for diabling the button from ARP, as @kevbts is asking about disabling the option on reinstall.

Sometimes you have to read between the lines and guess at what the underlying question is. Since the O/P did not come back with any additional information or questions in the last couple of months then either the problem has been solved or became a non-issue.

There are of course MSIEXEC command line options for reinstall using the REINSTALL and REINSTALLMODE properties, or you can hack out three tables from the MSI to allow endless reinstalls without prompting the repair dialog, but this is usually regarded as a crazy move.
