Internal Consistency Evaluators
Internal consistency evaluators also called ICE’s are custom actions written in VBScript, JScript or as a DLL or EXE. When these custom actions are executed, they scan the database for entries in database records that are valid when examined individually but that may cause incorrect behavior in the context of the whole database.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
On basic level ICE01 to 105 are a set of predefined rules created by Microsoft to confirm the contents, logic and structure of Windows Installer package (MSI).
The table below also includes the recent additions ICE101 to ICE105 which were introduced with Windows Installer 5.0
