I'm using the VS2005 setup project.
I have added a registry search under the 'Launch Condition'' to read a
In this registry search I set the property to REGISTRYVAL.
If the registry key is not found (not exist), then this REGISTRYVAL should
be an empty string, otherwise it will contain some directory path.
I want to use this REGISTRYVAL as an argument to a custom action I'm writing
using the VB.NET, so in the custom action CustomActionData a wrote:
But when I'm installing the generated MSI, I'm getting an error (something
strange of file not found...) caused by this argument (for sure it's because
of this argument).
I also tried /MatlabPath="[REGISTRYVAL]" and /MatlabPath=[REGISTRYVAL]
But non works.
When I changed it to /MatlabPath="XXX" there in no error and it works
How should I use this REGISTRYVAL as an argument to my custom action so it
will work properly?
