I want to launch a Web page on the Finish button on the exit dialog. For this I have created a custom action (Action1), Launch Web Page, in all custom actions, and there I specified the URL for the Web page. I added Action1 as a DoAction event on the Finish button, before EndDialog. But the Web page is not launched. What should I do, to launch the Web page on the Exit dialog?
Unfortunately, the Launch Web Page action just launches a Web page whereever that action is in the script.
To get around that, you can do the following (the .msi attached to this article launches Internet Explorer* and goes to the Wise Web site once the Finish button is clicked).
- In the MSI Script, go to the Installation type at the top and select the Custom action.
- Add the Execute Program from Destination action. For the Custom Action name, give it whatever name you want.
Working Directory: ProgramFilesFolder
EXE and Command Line:[ProgramFilesFolder]Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe "http://www.wise.com"
- Click OK.
- From Setup Editor > Dialogs > Exit Dialog, double-click on the Finish button.
- In the Events tab select the Add button.
for the Event: DoAction
Argument: (enter the custom action name created in Step 2)
- Click OK and compile.
This will allow you to launch a Web page once the end-user clicks the Finish button.
