NOT REINSTALL vs _IsMaintenance = "Change" To Run Actions Only During Modify...

Hi all,

There are a few deferred actions I have which I only want to execute if a Modify (not Repair) installation is undertaken. Currently the condition for these actions is set as NOT REMOVE="ALL" AND VersionNT64 .

With this the actions will run during Repair, which I guess is not a big deal at all, but I was just wondering which would be better to add to the condition...

NOT REINSTALL

or

_IsMaintenance = "Change"


Any opinions apprecitated!!

Thanks!

More and more I try to take as few dependencies on IS specific things so I would tend to sway toward NOT REINSTALL since it is an MSI-centric concept available in all authoring tools.

Just my .02
