Good morning all,
I have basic functionality that I can't get to work correctly, can someone point me to documentation which will explain why, what I am doing is wrong. If this is the wrong place to post this type of question apologies, where is the correct place?
I have two features, but only one can be installed at a time, based on the result of a custom action. If I hard code the property value "INSTALLFEATURE" my MSI behaves correctly, but if I set the value through a CA then none of my features get installed. The MSI can be ran silently, which is why I chose InstallExecuteSequence and not InstallUISequence. My guess is that it's a sequencing issue, but I am running my CA as early as possible.
Here are the wix portions I am referring to: I left the two versions of my condition syntax in case it helps.
<Property Id="INSTALLFEATURE" Value='A' />
<Feature Id="MYFEATURE_A" Title="Feature_A" AllowAdvertise="no" Absent="allow" Display="hidden" Level="0">
<Condition Level="1"><![CDATA[INSTALLFEATURE = "A"]]></Condition>
<Feature Id="MYFEATURE_B" Title="Feature_B" AllowAdvertise="no" Absent="allow" Display="hidden" Level="0">
<Custom Action="CADllUpdateFeatureProperty" Before="LaunchConditions"></Custom>
Besides many google searches here is a reference I found:
