@Vijaya7890 why on earth would you write something directly into the CA table rather than just compiling your script and importing it into the project as a CAB file?

Sorry, You didn't understand the requirement properly.

In general, we will be having a vbscript file and we need to copy its contents to create a custom action in msi through custom action table.

Which we will do manually using msi editing tools like orca or installshield.

As msi is a database, we want to automate this process as if user provides a vbs, it should automatically embed to the msi as a vbscript custom action.

 

Hope you understood the requirement.We are not trying to add this vbscript file as a installable file in msi. We want to get it embedded in a custom action to use its internal logic.

 

Any Help..!
