SdShowMsg causing Main Installation window to minimize

I am having a Installscript Project which launches the MSXML installation setup.
The code is mentioned below.

SdShowMsg("Installing MSXML 6.0", TRUE);

LaunchAppAndWait(sExe,sParameters, LAAW_OPTION_WAIT |LAAW_OPTION_HIDDEN);

SdShowMsg("Installing MSXML 6.0", FALSE);

But this minimizes the main Installation window to minimize. I dont want Main installation window(Installer) to be minimized. Instead it should be open as normal.
Attached the image.
Please help.

It should not be possible for an SdShowMsg call to cause the main installer to become minimized in any way. A quick test in a sample InstallScript project with SdShowMsg does not result in the main install becoming minimized.

- Are you using a full screen setup?
- Where is this call to SdShowMsg in your script (which event, where in the event)?
- Is the dialog cache disabled in your script?

I was calling SdShowMsg in OnFirstUIAfter event.

I was installing the required stuffs like .net framework, MSXML in OnFirstUIAfter.
Now I moved this code to OnMoved.Now there is no problem.

Write below code before using SdShowMsg()

This will enable your main dialogbox.
