I am new to InstallShield 4.0 and seem to have evrything I want working except:

When I select "Run Your Setup" under Test Your Release; when the Setup Complete Dialog appears, the Launch Program is checked but it does nothing. The launch property value is set to
"[INSTALLDIR]\MyProg.EXE". The file exists and both the start menu and desktop shortcuts work.

Thank You
Michael

I just gave this a quick try, and I could not reproduce the problem you had.

Could you try adding notepad.exe (from your windows folder) to you project's INSTALLDIR, and set the "Setup Complete Success" dialog to launch Notepad.exe. (Should be "[INSTALLDIR]notepad.exe").

This is the test I used, and it worked.
