Hi guys,

I found my mistake!

As my property remained at its initial value in my condition, I thought it was not modified at all...

but I found a post on stackoverflow that made me realize that to see the changed value in condition tag, I had to define the order of execution in the InstallUISequence as well as in the InstallUISequence.

So I correct my previous statements:

with immediate custom actions, it is possible to modify public properties and see the changes even in subsequent custom actions.

Thank you all,
