Setting Action Text for Chained Msi

Currently, my chained msi always appears behind my main msi. This may cause the user to not know that anything is actually happening.

I have done some reason into a fix for this and it appears that it is a windows installer problem and that there is no real fix for it.

In order to inform the user that a second installer has been launched, I would like to display text in the SetupProgress dialog. I have tried to add actiontext (added one for ISChainPackagePrepare) and I did not see anything.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks

I had a similar problem with my Suite install. Take a look at this post

Re: Setting Action Text for Chained Msi

Thank you for your reply. I am not sure that solutions applies to my problem because I am using a Basic MSI.
I must have forgotten to clarify this when describing my problem. My apologies.

You can still modify the Custom Action to fit your needs and get the same functionality.

It is not a custom action that launches the 2nd msi. It is run as a chained msi, which I believe uses Installshields dlls
