Configuring the Setup Project in visual studio RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have setup project in my solution in Visual Studio 2005. I am able to control the GUI in the Install and Administrative install modes. However, I need to set the text and actions that take place when uninstall is going on? Custom actions for uninstall is no problem. But how can I set what is displayed in the dialog when I remove the program from Add/Remove Programs. Right now in Vista I at least get the "Windows is configuring the "Application Name"" message. In XP and Windows 2000 I only see a progress bar with no text. Please advice how can I tune the GUI during the uninstall.

    P.S. Tried to get a person find out if it is possible to edit msi with Orca tools to add appropriate text, however he said that if there is not uninstall dialog specified, then he is unable to help.

    Thanks in advance.
