View Full Version : auto open folder, following install

12-15-2002, 04:32 PM
Using the ise4 trial, how do i instruct the setup to automatically open the [installdir] following completion of the installation.

Would like to see a 'My Computer' type of window pop-up and thus display all of the files just installed.

Can this be done in the "dialogs" section under "setup complete success"

thnx, chacha

To open explorer to the location the files were just installed after an installation do the following:

1. Go to the "Custom Actions" view
2. Create a new "EXE" Custom action and set the properties as follows:

Source Location: File Exists on Target Computer
File Location: [WindowsFolder]
File Name and Command Line: Explorer.exe [INSTALLDIR]
Invoke: After Setup Complete Success dialog
Wait for Action: No
Run Once: Yes
Execute: During Installation
Ignore Exit Code: Yes

Hope this helps,
