Silent install progress bar

It would be helpful to show a progress bar during a silent install to keep the user from getting worried.

Re: Application will not launch

It turns out that there were a number of files left over in the installation folder that had accumulated over multiple uninstall/install cycles

I had to reboot to delete them and that fixed the launch

Leo, thanks for checkng out the project..

Application will not launch

On the Dialogs/Finish page I have Launch Application set and the File set to <installDir>\myprog.exe

At the end of the installation I get the launch page, but the launch does not happen

Am I missing a setting somewhere?

Re: Update program version when Updater run

Leo,

I am not sure I understand - could you expand on that?

I don't want to uninstall the whole package - just want to replace the executable file

Re: Has anyone succeeded with the Updater?

Now the updater is working - which is a really good feature (thanks again Leo), I was expecting the updater to insert the new version number. In my case going from 3.0.0 in the installed version to 3.0.1 in the updated version. If I run the updater again, its still shows the current version to be 3....
