Custom action execution on update uninstallThis feature lets an update add or change a custom action so that the custom action is called when an update is uninstalled.

Issues that are addressed in Windows Installer 4.5

The issues present in earlier versions of Windows Installer that are addressed in Windows Installer 4.5 are as follows:

  • The SeBackupPrivilege user right was missing in the Windows Installer service. This lack hindered any custom actions that needed this user right.

  • Some case-sensitive service-name comparisons in the InstallValidate action resulted in an unnecessary 'files in use' message in Windows Vista.

  • When you uninstalled an update that added a new component, the component was also uninstalled. This occurred even if the component was shared by other products.
