Rollback CA can't access variables

Hi,

I'm using Install Shield 2008 Premier, and run into a bit of a problem. I have a Custom Action for which I must set a rollback one (type 1318 vbScript, In-Script Execution = Rollback Execution), but need the INSTALLDIR given by the user at install time.
Tried to access the INSTALLDIR two ways:

"
installDir = Session.Property("INSTALLDIR")
"

and

"
propArray = Split(Session.Property("CustomActionData"), ";")
installDir = propArray(0)
--and have a MSI CA (type 51) with the same mane as property name and value [INSTALLDIR] --
"

but both return a empty value for the installDir.
How can I access the INSTALLDIR on the rollback action?

Thanks,
Daniell

The Type 51 has to be scheduled before the rollback CA and the name of the property being set has to match the name of the deferred CA. As an aside, other then directory names like INSTALLDIR, all other PUBLIC properties being referenced should be added to the SecureCustomProperties property to avoid problems in UAC/Managed/Elevated installation scenarios.
