How can i do this? I have seen everywhere that there's a "node" on the Dialog tab where u can choose your skin, and that on the release you specify if u want it skinned. Sorry if i seem kinda off, but i simply don't get it!

Thanks a lot everyone.

To begin, what type of project are you using (MSI, InstallScript)? What have you tried?

Kind of, but the functionality is called adding a "theme"; please see this newsletter tip: http://www.macrovision.com/company/news/newsletter/tips/msi_themes_is2008.shtml.

again, thanks for the reply.

I already knew about the themes though. The thing is, there's a lot of limitations in the use of themes, so I think i'll turn around to Installscript. The only thing about using installscript is that my app needs to read the registry and get a value for a project variable use, and well... System search is not supported.. Anyways, already found the RegDBQuery function so i hope all goes better..
