Check for plugged in device

Hello. I am working with InstallShield 2015 Pro and I have a Basic MSI project. I am trying to detect whether a specific USB device is plugged in or not. I created a custom interior dialog with prompt to plug in the device and I wanted to enable 'Next' button only when it is done. I need it for another custom action for calling attached .exe (kinda installation for my device).

Is it even possible?

Thanks in advance.

Check for plugged in device

Hello,

I am also trying to detect whether a specific USB device is plugged in or not. I have to compare it with PID & VID of that device.

Prompt reply appreciated.

Thank you.
With regards,
Shashi

Re: Check for plugged in device

I have not done this before but why not use a Managed Code Custom Action?
