ActionData Messages

Field Description of action data
[1] GUID of unregistered COM class.



The installer sets the OLEAdvtSupport property to true when the current user's system has been upgraded to work with install-on-demand through COM. If the system does not support install-on-demand through COM, UnregisterClassInfo removes all COM classes listed in the Class table associated with either uninstalled features or features installed as advertised from the system registry. Otherwise, this action removes only the COM classes associated with features selected to be uninstalled from the system registry.
