Uninstall Help!

How to call an external executable / call functions from an external Win 32 DLL at the time of un-install?

Hi, I have an InstallScript MSI project.

I am using InstallScript for performing some actions at the time of feature install / un-install. The actions at the time of install work fine.

However, the control won't even go to uninstall functions, even when I debug!

The un-installing functions are:
export prototype Feature_Drivers_UnInstalling();
function Feature_Drivers_UnInstalling()

Please, help asap!

Where in the sequence is the ca scheduled to run? You need to put custom actions you want to run during uninstall in the execute sequence because if you remove a program using add/remove programs then the uninstall completely skips the UI sequence.

Also, I attached a pdf file that Robert Dickau wrote about setting conditions for installing and uninstalling that has helped me in the past. I uploaded the file because I couldn't remember the link. Anyway, hope this helps.
