I have an email link in the rtf file that I use for the license agreement. Everything looks fine in the rtf file. When I install the application, the "mailto" link is visible to the user like below:

Should you have any questions concerning this Agreement, or if you desire to contact MRMA for any reason, please contact either at the following address: Info@xyz.com <mailto:Info@xyz.com>

What should have been is:
Should you have any questions concerning this Agreement, or if you desire to contact MRMA for any reason, please contact either at the following address: Info@xyz.com.

Hi noobe1
The rich text box (I assume you use this to display your RTF text) can find URLs, but not EMAIL addrsses. I do not see a easy way to do a trace for the email address. Regex would probably do it, but at the cost of time and heavy programming.
I solved my similar problem by using a LinkLabel control hard coded outside the RTF box.

Hi jrscherer,
How do I use the LinkLable control on the standard License Agreement dialog??

Sorry, I missed this answer.

There is none on the default dialog form for licenses, but I wrote a small form myself and added ti as a Custom Action form to the Install custom action.
