Suite: Could not uninstall a feature

Hello,
i have two Installer (Basic MSI Project). Each installer has this features.

InstallerA:
Always_A
FeatureX_1
FeatureX_2
FeatureZ_1_A
FeatureZ_2_A

InstallerB:
Always_B
FeatureY
FeatureZ_1_B
FeatureZ_2_B

I want to install both with a suite.
At the end i want to have a suite with the following feature tree.

InstallerA
FeatureX_1
FeatureX_2
InstallerB
FeatureY
Other
FeatureZ_1
FeatureZ_2

InstallerA:AlwaysA and InstallerB:AlwaysB should always installed
FeatureZ_1 should install InstallerA:FeatureZ_1_A and FeatureZ_1_B
FeatureZ_2 should install InstallerA:FeatureZ_2_A and FeatureZ_2_B

But i could not get it running.

So i tried a simple suite with this features:
Always_A
Always_B
FeatureX_1
FeatureX_2
FeatureY
FeatureZ_1_A
FeatureZ_1_B
FeatureZ_2_A
FeatureZ_2_B

Installing only the selected features is working. But if i only want remove a few deselected features nothing is removed.
Only if i deselect all features from an installer the features are removed.

I have attachted my projects.
Is it a bug or is something wrong?

Thanks Simon

Simon,

I have the same problem,

See thread:

Seems to be something wrong with the suite.

Under your SelectionTree element, I only see the associated features listed; I don't see a raw one. I believe you need to add the raw package reference. For example, perhaps the Always A Suite feature should reference both {25E3CECA-DC13-48EE-A6A8-FB2AB01BD2EE} and {25E3CECA-DC13-48EE-A6A8-FB2AB01BD2EE}:Always_A - just separate them with spaces in the Install attribute. For example, give this a try (with similar modification for B):

Thanks.
I have changed it for both packages.





but it is still not working.

My Test:
I have installed it with the Complete Selection and then with Modify i tried to remove FeatureZ_2_A and FeatureZ_2_B. I have attached the logfile.

[/CODE]

First the state 2 (The package will run its Modify operation) is requested for the parcels.
But at the end they have the state 5 (No action will be performed for the package)

What I'm doing wrong?
