MSI to run Packaged EXE

Post by Nillth » Wed Nov 07, 2018 2:44 am

Product: PowerShell Studio 2018 (64 Bit)
Build: v5.5.155
OS: Windows 10 Enterprise (64 Bit)
Build: v10.0.17134.0

After Successfully building a EXE.
I am able to run the EXE and get the expected output.

When building a MSI to deploy the EXE I have added a custom action to call the EXE after system has been modified.
However it does not call the deployed EXE.

Any thoughts?

Oh, sorry, this one slipped through. I'll make sure the team looks at it.

Please try rebuilding the MSI using the latest version of PowerShell Studio 2019 (v5.6.156). We resolved an issue involving the packager.exe being called from an MSI custom action.
