[wix-users] MBA Problems with Repair Installation

Thanks for your reply,

Yesterday, I have  been misled - Today, in repeating my tests, I discovered, that the REINSTALL and REINSTALLMODE are of course set for the MSI. Unfortunatley, REINSTALLMODE iss et to cmuse - in our case we would like to have vomus, because we want to replace files though the product is already installed. Now the documentation states that REINSTALLMODE cannot be arbitrarilly set because 

Burn controls the follow MSI properties so they cannot be set with MsiProperty: ACTION, ALLUSERS, REBOOT, REINSTALL, REINSTALLMODE.

Best regards,

What did the detection process report for these MSI's? What handlers do you have for Detect/Plan of packages and what are you responding to the engine for them?

Hello All,

our MBA installs several MSI-packages.

Our problem: when we plan a Repair-installation - i. e. calling Engine.Plan( LaunchAction.Repair ) - at least one MSI package is called without REINSTALL and without REINSTALLMODE. The log writes something like

OurPackage.msi, arguments ' ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT="1" MSIFASTINSTALL="7"'

Why is this so?
In the documentation, I read, that in Repair-Mode REINSTALLMODE is automatically set to cmuse for any MSI-package.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Heiner Violet
