As part of one of my installers, I need to start a background process when it is done copying files. When updating I need to stop the process and restart it again after the files have been updated. When uninstalling, I need to stop the process before the files are removed. Using the sequence below, it appears that when I’m updating to a newer build, the “Stop” call happens after the file copy is attempted. It fails to overwrite the files that were executing. Also, I know that the previous bundle is removed with a -quiet call to the same installer, and I never want that to halt my freshly-started background service. What is the right Before/After and conditions for my scenario?

                <Custom Action="StartBackgroundService" Before="InstallFinalize">NOT (REMOVE ~= "ALL") AND BUNDLESAYSSTARTBACKGROUNDSERVICE</Custom>
                <Custom Action="StopBackgroundService" After="InstallInitialize">Installed OR (REMOVE ~= "ALL")</Custom>
