[wix-users] Uninstallation of related bundle

In addition to John's advise, I also do the following:

In OnDetectRelatedBundle use e.Operation == BOOTSTRAPPER_RELATED_OPERATION_MAJOR_UPGRADE (or others as applicable).  Since I use my mba in many different bundles I filter this with the BundleTag
                else if (e.Operation == RelatedOperation.MajorUpgrade && myBA.Model.BundleTag.Equals(e.BundleTag, StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase))
                    myBA.Model.IsBundleMajorUpgradeDetected = true;

Take a look at implementing event handlers for DetectUpdate, DetectUpdateBegin, and DetectUpdateComplete as well as DetectRelatedBundle.  There are implementations for all of these in the MBA that WiX itself uses that you can use as a starting point.

The e-mail below is from an external source.  Please do not open attachments or click links from an unknown or suspicious origin.


When upgrading a bundle, the old bundle is removed (similar to an MSI major upgrade). So how can my CustomBA detect whether such a "major upgrade" uninstall is running in order to distinguish this situation from a "real" uninstall? In MSI, the property UPGRADINGPRODUCTCODE can be queried for this purpose; is there something similar in Burn?

Best regards
