[wix-users] (deprecated) Windows Installer Repair Failure

csim
We use a PowerShell script to upgrade our development servers and our product is contained in a 1.7GB MSI file. The PowerShell script copies the package from a network share to the local %TEMP% directory, then executes the MSI in silent mode. Upon successful installation the copy of the MSI in the %TEMP% directory is removed.

On development servers, it is typical for developers to replace components that are installed through the MSI with components they build themselves - these components generally will have a higher version number than that installed by the MSI. As a result, here is the scenario on upgrade and subsequently the error:
1. When upgrading some components are marked as "leave alone" because they have a higher version number than the new package.
2. The upgrade process performs an uninstall, which removes all components of existing package (including those that were marked as "leave alone" - this must be a bug in the Windows Install!!!).
3. The upgrade process performs an install; however, does not install the components that were previously marked as "leave alone".
4. When we first run an application from our product Windows Installer detects the missing component(s) and triggers a repair.
5. The repair initiates using the cached MSI under C:\Windows\Installer. However, when it comes time to replace the missing component:
    i. it looks like the Windows Installer does another search for the MSI that contains the component (bizarre)
    ii. fails to find the original copy as it's already been deleted
    iii. finds the cached copy, which is already executing; hence locked, and pops up a dialog requesting the location of a source MSI file.

COME ON - THIS MUST TO BE A BUG!!!!


I have attached the full repair log, and snippets of what I thought were interesting below with my comments surround in square brackets.  I would appreciate any feedback and possible work around. I would presume (many) others would've come across something like this before.

[Cached copy of installer found]
Original package ==> C:\Windows\Installer\14a4210d.msi
Package we're running from ==> C:\Windows\Installer\14a4210d.msi

Re: [wix-users] (deprecated) Windows Installer Repair Failure

Nir Bar
I must say that the description doesn't seem right
Can you post the full log with no inline comments?

If this is a major upgrade then depending on the scheduling of RemoveExistingProducts you'll get a full uninstall then full install, or delete/overwrite/add files.

For minor upgardes you will not get any removal, just overwrite/add files.
The partial log you posted isn't enough for me to understand which- if any- upgrade is occuring.

Re: (deprecated) Windows Installer Repair Failure

We're doing a major upgrade and RemoveExistingProducts may not be schedule in the most efficient place, i.e. between InstallValidate and InstallInitialize.

I'll attach the upgrade log in a following email as it's 42MB in size and I'm not sure if it'll be allowed.
