Currently experiencing difficulties when an application MSI patch is installed onto an existing application. If there is a shared .DLL file then the prior installed application will try and auto-repair as its detects that the required file has changed. Is there any way to turn off this feature of MSI? I want to do it on a per-package basis, not via Group Policy. My only other option is to re-package the applications with the .DLL files etc. installed into the local directory as opposed to System32 thus negating the possibility of a file conflict as every application will have their required files. However, this is undesirable as it would mean a lot of new work and revisiting previously finished tasks.
I appreciate that this is something of a strange request as auto-repair is a key feature of MSI.
Installing an application with the command line
msiexec.exe /i yourapp.msi DISABLEADVTSHORTCUTS=1
would prevent it to repair itself when clicking the shortcut in the startmenu.
and setting the property
