VDPROJ to WIX - Installation running the old custom action

Hi,

We are using the VDPROJ to WIX convertor to convert our installation.
When upgrading the msi use the previously installed version custom actions dll instead of using the new installation custom action dll.

Besides that everything seems to work, the new dlls are deployed (in a new version folder), the old dlls are deleted, registry keys are written and etc…

Can you help me with this problem?

Thanks,
Omri

Hi Omri,

This is the correct behavior. Uninstall custom actions of the old installation are run during the uninstallation process. Is it a problem for you?

Hi,

The problem is that the custom action of the installation process that runs after the uninstallation is done also with the previous custom action dll.

In the VDPROJ the uninstallation process was done with the "old" (previous version) custom action dll and the installation process was done with the "new" (current version) custom action dll.
