Hi,
I don't know whether this is the right section for my question, It would be helpful if you could guide me to the right section. Anyway my question is,

How do I display bitmaps in the background of my installation when the files are getting copied onto my hard disk?

I tried to use BillBoards(10 of them), but the problem is that, one stays for a very long time, the other 9 stays for maximum 2 seconds,

Hi!

You have to use the StatusUpdate function on this way:
StatusUpdate( ON, 100 );

*

If it not works, handle the progressbar manually by the 'SetStatusWindow' function.

You wrote that you have 10 billboards.
So you have to update billboards at every 10 percents.
Sorrily you have to copy your file with CopyFile or XCopyFile...it makes the things go hard...
Or cut the media library into 10 blocks (copy the selected file or not).
