Launch App at end of install not working on Vista

I am trying to launch an app at the end of an installation by checking a check box or not. This all works find in XP, but when I use Vista nothing happens.

The Custom Action is set to:

Asynchronous no wait for completion
Immediate execution.
Always execute.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance?

If you're using the standard support, and if the item you're running requires elevated privileges, and if setup.exe did not elevate (instead you see the UAC dialog after you click Install), then the problem is most likely that an underlying CreateProcess call failed because ShellExecute is necessary for elevation.
