Simple question about Deferred CA and dialog

Hello,
I am working with InstallSHield 2015, with a Basic MSI project.

I am trying to open a Custom Dialog (which just contains a text and a button OK to close it) from a Deferred Custom Action.
But it Failed, the desired dialog is not displayed.

I am asking if it 's possible during the execution of a deferred CA to display a Dialog?

Thank for you help

Regards

Yes. You are going to need to roll your own in whatever language you're writing the custom action in, though. Don't forget to check the UILevel property to avoid showing the dialog during silent installation!

And of course, you have to get this value through via CustomActionData
