This issue has been solved. See solution.


I have a Wisescript(WSE=EXE) that modify and backup a file, and create a folder(is simple), and is called from WindowsInstaller(WSI=MSI), that I saw in other post:(

"5. Place your cursor between the InstallInitialize and InstallFinalize script actions for the custom action to be launched between these two actions during the installation.
6. Double-click the Run WiseScript from Installation script action from the Actions pane. The Run WiseScript from Installation dialog box appears."

Ok, my problem is that when I click in Remove program from Windows Control Panel, the WiseScript run again, namely, modify and backup a file and create a folder again!! I don't understand!

What i do wrong? or what i am missing?

Thanks very much!!!

OK!!! I solved already the problem!! :D

In Windows installer editor, "Execute Immediate tab", I've written below "InstallInitialize" :

If NOT Installed then

Run WiseScript From Installacion "xxx"


And below RemoveExistingProducts

If REMOVE~="ALL" then

Execute Program From Destination unwise32.exe etc etc etc(before I copy unwise32.exe to the computer )
