Is it possible to show prerequisite results before launching the MSI?

One of the requirements for my installer is that it has to show the status of the prerequisites it installs. The prerequisite dialog that is generated by InstallShield does a good job of this, however, when the prerequisite installations are finished, the dialog closes and my installer immediately launches. Is there a way to keep the prerequisite dialog on the screen until getting confirmation from the user, or am I going to have to write my own bootstrapper to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance.

You can probably try launching a custom action as the first action in UI sequence and check for the successful installation of the prerequisite using the RegDBKeyExist function...that is the earliest you can launch a custom action....If you are using a custom prerequisite then you can add this code with in the prerequiste itself...
