Its possible that the file is not yet available at the point you are running the custom action in the installation sequence.

There are two things you can try:

1. Change the In-script Execution to "deferred"


2. Move the Immediate Execution custom action to after "InstallFinalize"

If niether of these work, does the command that you are using work outside of the installation context? For example manually run that command against SQLCMD.EXE

It seems like i run this command, before i set my Data base.

I set it on Installed FeatureEvent rul.

How can i set the time of my sqlcmd custom action after all other  FeatureEvents are done?
