Can we use any MFC classes directly in InstallShield scripts?

-------------------------------------
Here is the response i got from InstallShield when i asked them how to
populate data in list control in InstallShield.
You can use the IDE to create the custom dialog controls and lay it out,

however you will have to write the script that will provide the logic behind

the custom dialog, and even populate your list control. If you need more

help on how to populate a list control, you should look on Microsoft.com on

their MSDN site. You should be able to find more information on how to do

that there.

No...

You can't use MFC in Installscript...

I'm not sure why they redirected you to MSDN site for this, it should be
possible to do this using InstallScript..

The reason we direct you to MSDN site is that in case you need complex
controls on your dialog (combo box, for example), you need to have some
Windows knowledge on what type of message it expects.

For most of the controls, we use them in some of our dialogs. So most of the
time you can simple take a look of our dialog source code and do a
copy/paste.
