View Full Version : Progress Bar for Custom Action

10-21-2015, 12:28 PM

I have a suite project that uses a custom action to run an executable that generates a font cache. I currently have the custom action running the installed executable in the OnPackagesConfigured step. I want to show some kind of progress indicator to the user. The custom action is set to "wait for exit" as it needs to finish before the installer completes.


How can I add the custom action as part of the install progress bar? Should I create a new dialog just for this custom action?
Is the OnPackagesConfigured the correct step to add the custom action?
How do I create a progress bar that just cycles? It doesn't need to show actual progress with ticks.

If any of you can point me to an pre-existing documentation on the subject, that would be great. I couldn't find much, despite exhaustive searches.
