Custom Action failed to launch under AD push Install

P: n/a
Our .Net installation project includes a custom action that is launched post
install. When the msi is run from a desktop, all is fine. We tested an
install doing an Active Directory push to client machines and it failed.
The application installed but the custom action would not launch and the
install hung. The only error message we could find in the Event Viewer was
'Fatal Error', nothing else. A customer of ours was able to successfully do
a push using SMS however. What can I look at to try to determine where the
failure occurrs?

Hi Eric,

Thank you posting!

failure occurrs?

I suggest you can launch that installation from command line and enable its
log option, you will have a detailed msi log file with the installation,

msiexec /i AppInst.msi /l*v log.txt
