Below the VB6 installation folder there is a project in Wizards\PDWizard\Setup1 folder. This is the source for the setup1 project that the deployment wizard creates.

You can change this project to start the application file after installation (KEEP A BACKUP OF THE ORIGINAL FOLDER!!).

Actually, you can do whatever you want to the setup by changing this project.
