    Unanswered: SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine aka MSDE cusomized msi installer

    I have created a custom Desktop Engine (MSDE) msi file as per
    the microsoft web page Managing Desktop Engine Installation Package Files" with the additional steps of setting the instance name, security mode, target and data directory global properties in the property table.

    I then use the command "msiexec /i Customized.msi" and all appears to go well. The server instance is installed and works.

    my problem is that both "msiexec /x Customized.msi" and Add/Remove programs fails

    sorry - i hit the carriage return by mistake and that sent the previous post before i finished.

    My problem is that both "msiexec /x Custom.msi" and Add/Remove programs fail. There are no error messages, the uninstall goes for a while and then rollsback. This happens even if i use the provided setup.exe with my custom msi file to do the install.

    A log file (3400 lines worth) records this behavior but no obvious failures except for a bunch of lines like:

    MSI (s) (20:F0): Note: 1: 1402 2: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MSSQLServer\ Setup 3: 2

    MSI (s) (20:F0): Note: 1: 1402 2: UNKNOWN\Installer\Features\3C3B59EA19576DA4AB84301 D944F7B59 3: 2

    are these an issue, what is UNKNOWN supposed to be?

    Then i see the following lines:
    MSI (s) (20:F0): Executing op: ActionStart(Name=StopServices,Description=Stopping services,Template=Service: )
    Action 17:04:39: StopServices. Stopping services

    Action ended 17:04:39: InstallFinalize. Return value 3.
    MSI (s) (20:F0): User policy value 'DisableRollback' is 0

    after which it appears that the rollback has started.
    So is there a problem doing this UnInstAgentSecurity action?
    if so - does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

    thanks in advance for any help
