The sequence which Basic MSI dialogs are displayed is controlled by Events on the "Back" and "Next" buttons.

In the screenshot below you can see the "NewDialog" event on the Next button on the "InstallWelcome" dialog.


If you wanted the "Next" button on the InstallWelcome dialog to open a different dialog simply click the Dialog Name Value and choose it from the drop down.

It is the same process for the "Back" buttons which makes sure that everything flows in order.

With regards to creating a new Dialog, please see the following article:
"Adding a New Dialog":

It looks like you are using either an Installscript or Installscript MSI project.

The dialogs for these project types are handled directly by Installscript and this is different to a Basic MSI project.

Most of the user interface of an InstallScript or InstallScript MSI installation is defined in event handlers such as OnFirstUIBefore and OnFirstUIAfter.

There is a wealth of knoweledge on how to create and edit Installscript dialogs in our documentation which you can read through at the link below.
Be sure to also browse the left side menu in the link which provides different articles regarding Installscript dialogs.
