I have created a generic installer for windows 2003, xp and vista. It works fine in terms of functionality. However, I have one consmetic issue which is not good. It is actually misleading.

As soon as I run setup.exe on Vista, it shows me a doalog for "preparing to install" with a progress bar. After a while, in the top left cornet of the desktop, the progress bar is displayed and also the cancel button is displayed at the same location. After the "prepartion for installation" is over, the dialog disappears and so does the second progress bar in the top left corner. After that, everything is normal. I completely fail to understand why such an issue. The user might think that something is wrong in the installation. Can someone please clarify if they have faced a similar issue? This dummy progress bar never appears on any other platform. Has it something to do with the OS or something is wrong in the way I have created the installer? How do I fix this?

Your help is very much appreciated.
