Installer not executing Custom Actions on Silent Install

Hi @all,

I have build an installer using IS 2014 Express which does manipulations do a database setup using a dll as custom actions on "After Setup Complete Success dialog"

When running the installer using the UI everything works as expected.
But when I run the installer with the silent switches the installation works fine, but the custom actions are not executed.

Any ideas?

Maybe the actions are not executed because there is no "Complete Success dialog" in silent mode...

In order to run your custom action in a silent installation, you must sequence it to one of the following locations:

  • Before File Transfer
  • After File Transfer
  • After COM Registration
  • After Register Product
