Installshield 2018 R2 Unable to get Detect / Exit Conditions to work for exe Packages


Unable to get Detect / Exit Conditions to work for Packages

I just cannot figure out how to achieve following:

Only install my package (exe) when it's not installed already
Abort setup when package execution fails

Seems to be pretty basic and exactly what Detection / Abort Conditions seem to exist for.

So what I do is following:

Create Registry key xyz in myPackage.exe if it succeeded, otherwise skip creating registry xyz

and use that for the Detect Conditon and configure Prompting for ExitCondition.
