I wish to create an installation which displays an image as its background during the installation. The image should fill the screen and have no buttons or border at the edges.

I have re-instated the code in the OnFirstUIBefore handler as per the help instructions to create a full screen background window.

function OnFirstUIBefore( )
...
Enable( FULLWINDOWMODE );
Enable( BACKGROUND );
...

However, this still shows the buttons and border for that window.

Q. Is there a way to completely hide the frame and buttons in the background window displayed by the code above ?

or

Q. Is there another way to display an image that completely fills the screen as a background to the instalation dialog sequence ?

I am using the professional version of InstallShield 2012 and trying to produce an InstallScript MSI project.

Thanks in advance for any good suggestions / solutions.

FULLWINDOWMODE keeps the window title bar and border for a fullscreen setup. Commenting out the line to enable FULLWINDOWMODE (keeping the BACKGROUND enable) should provide what you are looking for.

The PlaceBitmap function can be used to display an image in the background window.
