How does a leading Danish public authority cope with what appear to be three opposing forces: reducing the cost of IT services delivery, providing a reliable IT service to 30,000 users, and ensuring peak performance? For Copenhagen City Council, the answer was simple: Symantec. The Council has introduced an integrated client management and endpoint security solution―underpinned by Symantec Business Critical Services―to ensure every endpoint is securely protected from malicious malware threat and quickly and reliably package applications, distributing them sometimes to users in a zero-touch environment. Once the workflow goes live, software deployment time is expected to drop from up to 10 days to half an hour . The Council has also experienced a 20 percent increase in endpoint administration productivity, and more reliable deployments, faster software rollouts, and standardized processes and desktops.

Uninstalling IE8 doesnot lead to IE 7 or 6 , IE just not opens

If so, then you'll need to uninstall SP3 first, then uninstall IE8.

Here's Microsoft's version of the "Alternative Method" uninstall string:

So you want a small custom action to run in the Execute Deferred sequence - maybe just to call CACLS.EXE on that folder, or something else, just tacked on the end of the installation.

You already know that you must place your deferred action between InstallInitialize and InstallFinalize.  So you place your new custom action just before InstallFinalize in the 'MSI Script' section of Wise Installer Editor.  But when you test your installation the installation fails with error 2762 (internal error, from the verbose log), then ultimately 1603.

What is going on?

Have a look at the InstallExecuteSequence table in Setup Editor.  Sort the table in Sequence number order by clicking on the heading of the Sequence column, then go to right near the end to find your custom action.

What is the Sequence number for InstallFinalize?  What is the Sequence number for your...

When working with MSI files, GUIDS can be stored in either the unpacked 38-character form eg: {4854B973-286B-4C7C-A81A-7ABC8BC07E45} or the shorter "packed" form, which requires only 32 characters - eg: 379B4584B682C7C48AA1A7CBB80CE754

There are various GUID-munger programs around, but they are one way tools. I have rudely plagiarised some of this code to create a two way converter for which the vbscript is shown below. Since there is no "copy to clipboard" native functionality in vbscript, I have added some code which leverages the MS Office Word automation object, so for this to function as intended, you must have MS Office installed (my version is Office 2007).  This makes it easy to paste in either an unpacked or a packed GUID, have the converted string displayed back, and then copied to the clipboard for further use in another window.  My thanks to VBScab who apparently found the original code somewhere on Appdeploy and later shared it with...
