Does anyone know how to change the size/position of this dialog? I'm
referring to the final dialog that shows the installation progress.
Billboards are useless if there is a big dialog blocking them!! And the
fact that you have to use static BMP files for the billboards does not help
with dealing with multiple resolution possibilities. Maybe if the
billboards could be placed at 0,0 instead of centered, but you can't even do
that!

K.C:

Check out the InstallScript function "PlaceWindow" in the InstallShield
Developer Language Reference Help library. This function allows you to set
where billboards and the Progress Dialogs are placed on the screen.

Hope this helps,
Mike Marino

In addition, you probably want to use a smaller progress dialog, try:

Enable(STATUSOLD) instead.
