Software Deployment Question
Selfhealing userspecific files fails?
I have repackaged an application containing several files under c:\Program Files (x86)... and a few files under c:\Users\<profile>\AppData\<app>
I have put the userspecific files in a isolated component in the same feature as the corresponding shortcut.
I have created a custom action "Set Directory" and set the directory "USERFOLDER" to: [%APPDATA]\<manufacturer>\<product>
The resulting MSI installs all files succesfully for the first user. But when I log on with other users selfhealing fails.
I install the MSI for user A. Logs out of the system and logs on again with user B.
Selfhealing is not initiated when clicking on the shortcut.
BUT if I delete the files for user A and user B initiates selfhealing then the files are reinstalled for user A (instead of user B)?
Does anyone know how to solve this?
I am working with "Wise Package Studio" and "Windows 7 (64 bit)"
Actually I made a rookie mistake and forgot to add the HKCU-registry as keypath :( My keypath was one of the files. New keypath solved the problem :)
