Location of MSI Deployment?

Aug 30, 2011 at 5:24 PM

Hello,

I am currently trying to deploy to a remote machine, and it is saying that the MSI is "deployed" or "installed."  However, when I go into Programs and Features ==> Uninstall a Program, my MSI is nowhere to be found.  Any idea on where it might be? :)

Thank you,

Michael

Ah... I think I found the problem.  The uninstall/install code doesn't account for 64-bit (Wow6432Node) installations.

My installation is found at the following path in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{UninstallCode}

Setting the "TargetPlatform" property in the installer Deployment Project Properties to x64 seems to place the keys in the expected location.
