Some dialog skipped during installation
I've a few setup file (different version, build options set to single file EXE (download version) and EXE that launches external MSI (cd version) ) written with Windows Installer Editor. Below's problem,
-> Install version2_beta.exe . installation is ok.
-> When I try to install version2_full.exe, during msi installation, it will prompt an error of 2573 (files not marked for installation). After some investigation, I found out that a few dialog in msi were skipped (before installation).
Normal installation will show these sequence of dialog: Welcome, License, Single Feature Destination, Select Feautre, Start Installation
Installation error will only show these dialog: Welcome, License, Start Installation
So by running the EXE, I wont be able to install my app. In order to overcome this problem, I've to run the MSI directly, let it install first. After that, I need to run EXE which will prompt the maintenance mode for the MSI and repair it. Uninstall the app. Then re-run the version2_full.exe and the installation can proceed as normal.
Any idea what's happening? and can I fix this in the editor (either windows installer editor / wisescript)?
