See the CustomAction element doc:
This attribute indicates the scheduling of the custom action. This attribute's value must be one of the following:
Indicates that the custom action will run after successful completion of the installation script (at the end of the installation).
Indicates that the custom action runs in-script (possibly with elevated privileges).
Indicates that the custom action will only run in the first sequence that runs it.
Indicates that the custom action will run during normal processing time with user privileges. This is the default.
Indicates that the custom action will only run in the first sequence that runs it in the same process.
Indicates that a custom action will run in the rollback sequence when a failure occurs during installation, usually to undo changes made by a deferred custom action.

Subject: [wix-users] Run custom action on Rollback
I am using managed BA for creating setup. I have an immediate type custom action say "InstallCA" that will run an exe(this exe will do some
configuration) on install. On uninstall, I will remove that configuration by using another immediate type custom action. Both are working fine.
My problem is, if I cancel the uninstall, rollback occurred and uninstalled files are restored. But the InstallCA custom action is not get called, means the configuration is not restored.
I would like to run an immediate type custom action if rollback occurred.
What is the way to run a custom action on rollback?
Thanks in advance.
