Exit chained MSI installation without error

Hello!

I have stuck with a problem. My master installer installs slave application as a chained MSI. In this chained MSI I want to check version of previously installed application and skip installation if the newer version was found. The problem is if I exit the installation of chained MSI this leads to global rollback.

How to prevent IS from doing rollback if newer version of chained application installed is detected?

You should perform this check in the parent (possibly consider using a Suite instead) so that in this scenario it doesn't even launch this chained installation. Do you not have the information to check this in the parent?

Yes, I have the information to check this. Though i don't think it's an elegant solution. Anyway it helped, thank you!
