Hi

In my project, I want the user to have the ability to launch the application on install completion. This is fine and works well.

The problem I have is that the application launched is a specific web page (let's call it zzzz.html) contained in the project and I need it to open in fullscreen mode.

Normally, I'd create a preceding page to open zzzz.html in fullscreen with some javascript but I want to avoid that.

I would like to know if its possible to make the "Launch" perform the following command line :

"Iexplore.exe -k zzzz.html"

So that when the user launches the web page at the end of the installation, it does so with a full-page view.

Andy ideas?

Cheers!

I can think of two ways

1) Add a custom action for a VBScript for launching the .html and place the action on the 'Finish' button putting a condition to check for whether the user wants to launch the application.

2) Add a custom action for the exe file Iexplore.exe. The location of this file can be specified using Path variables. Now place this cutom action on the 'Finish' button.

Regards.
