Consider the following scenario:

  • You install Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) 4.5 on a Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP-based computer.
  • You install multiple instances of an MSI application on the same computer.

In this scenario, one of the installations may fail. Additionally, the following error message is logged:

API call rejected – No actions in Context

All other MSI installations are successful.

Note: This issue is most likely to be encountered during the installation of SQL Server 2008 or during an upgrade from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008.
