Launching file after install



Hi all,

I want to develop a setup exe which installs my application using VS
2005 setup projec when installation is done.
I havn't found any way for doing so. the last dialog in the
installation process is "Finished".
I there a way to launch my app after the "Finish" dialog?

Your setup project should support Custom Actions. You can add one for the
"Install" category by pointing to your executable file but make sure this
action's InstallerClass property is set to False (unless you really have
coded one). Note that this does not mean that your Finish dialog will
contain a check box prompting the user whether or not they would like to
start your program. You can code your own dialogs in the User Interface
