  • You need to make your issue clearer, really hard to decipher.

    How are you making the changes to the files? With a CA? And how were the files placed, with a CA?
  • I create a folder in maintenance mode based on user input(using installscript CA) AND COPY FILES from supportdir to it. I need to make changes in the copied files using user input values.

Check condition on CA and add "Installed" or "IS_MINOR_UPGRADE" search here...


by reading this it looks condition could also be MaintenanceMode="Reinstall" or "Change"

  • I did place the condition for component that has text file changes. I am able to copy files but unable to make text changes even with this condition in maintenance mode, but the files are being changed in first install. Is there anything to do with components or the sequence of text file changes. Should i put the condition for IsSerachReplace?
  • Got the Solution, Thanks for the help.....

      • In maintenance mode add the condition to the dialog Reinstall, argument=ALL, CONDITION= _IsMaintenance=(your condition)
