Hi All,
I have created an MSI file for my .net remoting c# application in VS 2003.  It works well.  I have also added an Executable to the installaiton that will update the client application.  It is part of the MSI file.  I would like to make this Executable run after the installation has completed.  How can I add command to my setup project to make the update component run when the installation is completed?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you will need to write code in the set up to start the exe.
Something on the lines of Process.Start if I remember right.
I have some code but I'll need to dig it out.

You need to right click on the set up solution, select View/User Interface.
Here you can add a custom interface. and handle events.
As i said, I need to do a search for the code. Incase I do find it i'll post it across.
