InstallerClass Property 

Specifies whether a custom action is a .NET Framework Installer class. A Installer class contains its own state management methods, allowing it to roll back an installation to its previous state.

Caution noteCaution

This property should be set to true only for components that have been specifically configured as a Installer class. Simply changing this property does not turn a custom action into a Installer class.

The settings for the InstallerClass property are:
