Customize uninstall wizard


My installation creates shortcut to uninstall C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe /x {PRODUCT CODE HERE}. When user select that shortcut installer just asks user "Are you sure you want to uninstall this product?". That is not enough for me. I want to give more informative message to user.
Should I create Win32 app to display more informative message or there is standard way in InstallShield?

Thank You.

MSI installations, as produced from Basic MSI projects, do not actually use the value in that registry key, so it's not possible to replace it with an alternate program. If you really want to do this, your best bet may be to disable the remove button and edit the dialogs which appear down the remove option of the modify/repair/remove dialog sequence.
