Re: How to add Custom window in install shield professional edition

1) Go to the Dialogs view (under "User Interface")

2) In the center window, right-click on "All Dialogs" and select "New Dialog"

3) This launches the Dialog wizard ... just follow the wizard.

More details are provided in the Help that is installed as part of InstallShield. On the main menu at the top of the page, click Help / Contents, and search on the word Dialog. Looking around I am sure you will find what you need to know about adding controls (radio buttons, edit boxes, etc.) and how to use them, also how to insert the dialog into your user interface.

Good luck! Smiley Happy

Here is a link that discusses how to create a new theme; note that this is for an older version of InstallShield, but it will probably still work. I have never tried this myself.
