\->Source Code->VBSCRIPT->Custom Action Functions->CaSleep()

CaSleep()

This optional function can be used in any generated vbscript custom actions. It can be included or excluded (to save space if not required).
It is excluded by default, to changes this:

  1. Redefine the default value on the "OptCode" parameter (probably in a common header file).

  2. Use the "Optcode" parameter to override on individual custom actions.

This routine will pause a script for approximately the specified number of seconds.

A WSH script can use "wscript.sleep" to do this but unfortunately Microsoft forgot to add "wait" functionality to the Windows Installer engine.

You may pass these parameters:

  1. An integer which represents the delay in seconds.
