I have a xxx_Installed() function that is run as part of a feature. The script executes a DOS program to initialize the just installed feature. Is there a way to either pop up a message box while prior to running the DOS app and then take it down after DOS finishes OR modify the status message in the STATUSEX dialog? This is a 7.0.4 Standard install.

You can use SetStatusWindow ( nPercent, szString ) to fill an additional Text-Field above the standard one. Or use SdShowMsg(szMsg, TRUE) to pop up a message and SdShowMsg(szMsg, FALSE) to close it again.

HTH,
