  •  hi
    i have to create a .msi file using visual studio 2008 SP1.

    in that i have to customize all the user interface screens coming at the time of instllation...

    I Created the wizard from the "New Project" dialog

    and selected the Other Project Types -> Setup and Deployment -> Setup Wizard  ->select the further option 

    and i got some pre defined user interface screens like  welcome,progress,finished etc...

    i am not able to customize these screens look and feel...
    i need to change the appearance of those..
    how to do that????

    is that possible using Custom Actions??how to use that????
    Regards, L.Tony

  • I suppose if you wish that kind of flexibility, you will need to get the Windows Installer SDK and script the installation. You can also look to a product like Wise for Windows Installer or Installshield. These tools are IDE's for MSI databases and have visual designers for the forms.
