Abstract: We address the problem of interrelations between the properties of an action of a discrete group $\Gamma$ on a compact Hausdorff space $X$ and the algebraic and analytical properties of the module of all continuous functions $C(X)$ over the algebra of invariant continuous functions $C_\Gamma(X)$. The present paper is a continuation of our joint paper with M. Frank and V. Manuilov. Here we prove some statements inverse to the ones obtained in that paper: we deduce properties of actions from properties of modules. In particular, it is proved that if for a uniformly continuous action the module $C(X)$ is finitely generated projective over $C_\Gamma (X)$, then the cardinality of orbits of the action is finite and fixed. Sufficient conditions for existence of natural conditional expectations $C(X)\to C_\Gamma(X)$ are obtained.
