launch application after installation in advanced UI project

Hi Team,

We are using install shield spring 2012 version. In the basic setup project we have an option to run the application after installation. But our requirement is run the application after installation in the advanced UI project. We found no option available to accomplish this. Can you please suggest any solution?

Regards,
Nirmal

You can use an Open action in your wizard, for example on the Finish button of your InstallationSuccess page. In InstallShield 2012 Spring I believe this looked like {Open PROPNAME} where PROPNAME can be substituted with the name of any property that contains the path to the exe you want to launch. Optionally you can specify some limited conditions by using more curly braces: {Open {PROPNAME},{OTHERPROP==VALUE}}.

(The notation for this was heavily changed in InstallShield 2013, so the more recent documentation on this won't help you in InstallShield 2012 Spring or earlier.)
