Hi,

I have a Install Shield 9 project (IS + MSI) that I pay attention to every time we make a release. :-)

It seems to be working. However, I've added a big subcomponent, and the time it takes copy copy all the files into Program Files is now noticable. But silent.

How do I get one of those funky Copy File progress dialogs? Right now, the last thing I do is call SdStartCopy. When the click next, they fall out of OnFirstUIBefore.

At which point, the files get copied, (albeit silently), and a bit later, OnFirstUIAfter runs.

Is there a function that I need to call or attribute I need to set to make IS put up a window showing the file copy progress?

Thanks, Brian

Hi Brian,

As long as this isn't a silent installation, you just need this call before you return from OnFirstUIBefore:

Enable(STATUSEX);
