This information applies to the following project types:
The Execute sequence is executed after the User Interface sequence, unless your installation is run in silent mode. The Execute sequence contains all the standard and custom actions that change the target system. For example, file transfer is handled during the Execute sequence. Typically, this sequence is the part of the installation where changes are made to the target machine.
Each sequence (Installation, Advertisement, and Administration) has different actions that occur in the Execute sequence. This discrepancy is due to the fact that each of those sequences achieves different goals. For example, the Installation sequence installs the product on the target machine. The Advertisement sequence installs the products advertised shortcuts, file-type information, and COM-server data on the target machine, but it does not transfer the products files until the end user selects the shortcut, opens a registered document, or invokes an advertised COM server. As can be gathered from the name of the sequence, the product is advertised.
