I got the tips from msdn link, to do SELECT in a MSI database.
(Am using below code to SELECT a Feature named Complete)

View = database.OpenView("SELECT `Feature`.`Feature` FROM `Feature` WHERE `Feature`.`Feature`= 'Complete'")

fetchDB = View.fetch()

If (fetchDB = "") Then
MessageBox.Show("This Database doesnt contain Feature 'COMPLETE'")
End If

i get error in the line "MessageBox.Show(fetchDB)" -- Am not able to convert _COMobject ot String
How can i convert the fetch data from dtabase to string to Check whether it is Null or not


Invalid CaseException was handled.
Conversion from type '_ComObject' to type 'String' is not valid.

Please assist

Thanks for your reply,
I have gone through the documentation. I will use SELECT and INSERT commands seperatly.
I have a question here,
Can i get value of the executing SELECT statement in a binary 1 or Zero value.
For e.g
SQLquery = "SELECT * FROM database WHERE `Feature` = 'Complete'"
View = database.OpenView(SQLquery) ---> This statement to give values 1 if YES, 0 is No

So that i can execute my next INSERT command accordingly ?

Sorry guys, for the incomplete question.
"COMException was unhandled
ApplyTransform, TransformFile,ErrorConditions"

for the line "instDb.ApplyTransform(MSTpath, MsiTransformError.msiTransformErrorViewTransform);"
