Please advise: Is it possible to debug a Web Setup Project, specifically its custom action code, by setting breakpoints and walking through the code? How does one do this?
I have tried inserting a MessageBox.Show command in order to attach the debugger. Doesn't work. Doesn't Show.
I have alsio tried inserting a Debugger.Launch command. Also doesn't work
Thanks for any help.

This seems to be a Vista issue. My custom action code, which does some file copies and event logging, works fine when I install this .msi on a windows 2008 server. But when I install on a Vista Business machine, most of the custom action code does not
work, including the Debugger.Break() call. This is even though I'm running the install as administrator.
