View Full Version : Force dialog box to appear first

02-18-2010, 10:40 AM
Hi, I would like to have a messagebox appear at the very beginning of an install, if the install detects that the OS is a certain architecture (e.g. 64-bit). Is there a way to force it to appear even before any of the usual Language Selection and Welcome dialog boxes appear? I am using InstallShield 2008 Premier Edition InstallScript. Thanks

Try placing the messagebox in OnBegin() event

Thanks for your reply gayathrim. My apologies, I should also have noted that I use the program...endprogram style in InstallScript, so OnBegin isn't called in that case. Is there still a way to get that dialog to appear first, using that style? Thanks again for the reply.
