Is there any way in InstallShield to automatically launch a URL when the user uninstalls a product?

you can use LaunchApp(PROGRAMFILES^"\"Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe\"", "<URL>");

Thanks - how do I actually do that in InstallShield Express though? What part of the wizard?

oh, sorry. I didn't look at the fact that you are using express. I am not sure what express looks like. Typically I place it in the OnFirstUIAfter, but that is in the professional edition. Do you have a place to edit the script or to add custom actions?

I have no idea. :(

I am very new to InstallShield and it's not very user friendly, to be honest. The help is kind of useless. There doesn't seem to be anything anywhere where you can do anything during the uninstall.

Figured it out! Man alive, the help was useless but you helped greatly by mentioning "Custom Actions". The help said nothing about uninstallation in the help index that said "go to custom actions and so stuff". Useless.

Anyway, thanks!
