View Full Version : when to run an exe?

11-05-2009, 04:21 AM
I have an EXE included in my project which should be run immediatelly when the setup is complete (as part of the setup) without prompting the user to run or not to run?

I know I have to add a custom action but what would be the properties for it and in which UI or action sequence?

here's a great article to familiarize yourself with the installation sequence.


if your action requires admin privs, it must be scheduled to run "deferred in system context"

if you still have questions after reading this page, and looking at the help topics for the custom action properties, i'll help you out a bit more.

good luck!
