I see the same thing as Bo, just modify/repair/remove and no install.

If you're talking about the script one the CVSNT_1_11_1_3_REL branch:
it doesn't have a type section so a default one is generated
automatically which has 'full' as the default type. Note that it
doesn't always select it: the previously selected setup type is
remembered between updates so the user only has to select a type on
the first install.

Anyway, here's an example [Types] section you could use:

Name: "compact"; Description: "Typical installation" 
Name: "full"; Description: "Full installation" 
Name: "custom"; Description: "Custom installation"; Flags: iscustom

The bug is in the script itself and can be fixed easily: use the
NextButtonClick and BackButtonClick events to show that page. The
ScriptDlg.iss sample in the ISX Sample dir shows how. Let me know if
you want me to show how.
