Quick guess: Your old bundle is not exiting properly when run (uninstalled) via upgrade.

Subject: [wix-users] Bundle upgrade gets stuck


Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this question. I have a bundle that installs several msi and exe packages. During an upgrade the progress bar "thinks" that installation is still proceeding after it has finished. I noticed in the logs that the new packages are installed successfully but the uninstall of the previous bundle shows as applying but does not have a corresponding applied line

I checked the log for the uninstall of the previous version
({6695674c-6fbb-42b8-b780-89638ab59d0e}) and it appears to have uninstalled correctly

Manually closing the processes of the old version in task manager causes the progress bar to complete. Are there additional logs I can check or particular patterns that would cause behavior like this and anything I can do to fix it?

Thank you!
