I have created a custom setup/installation package within VS and wanted to set a single checkbox user interface - thus far I have everythign set - but what I want to do, which is what I do not know how to do past this point, is to set the condition of the install based upon the value of the checkbox - any help would be greatly appreciated!

    It depends on what you want to have happen.  I assume you've added the checkbox dialog to your installation project.
    Now you can set the condition property on a file, folder, registry entry, custom action, or launch condition in the Installation Project.
