BUG ? RTF files don't display embedded images

In Prerequisites->Bootstrapper Pages , you can select RTF file for custom message.

Why use RTF format if the installer is not going to display images embedded in RTF file ? It's a little confusing, but seems you only support strictly TEXT RTF files, right?

Indirect property : CompanyLogo

I figured out you have to add it under teh Dialogs section, then the images tab. You can edit CompanyLogo there to point to your own image file. How in the world can I add my own .jpg , which is pointed to by Property: CompanyLogo , so that I do not have to edit every dialog in the installer and it ...

Re: HELP: Creating installer with basic .net windows service

What happens is that you need to overwrite one of the methods "Install", "Rollback", "Commit", "Uninstall" corespondent to what you set in the "Action" parameter. My action is "Install". From my previous post: public override void Install(System.Collections.IDictionary stateSaver) { base.Install(st...

Re: HELP: Creating installer with basic .net windows service

Is there any reply from _Advance Installer_ , or am I just left on my own ? At the least, can you please confirm if it ( .NET Installer class - Custom Action ) is supposed to work? That's not too much to ask is it.

Re: HELP: Creating installer with basic .net windows service

Is the .NET DLL written as an installer class action? Yes it is. If it is, are you overriding the "Install" method? Yes I am. Let me post all my code so you can test it on your end. I can't understand why, if in Adv. Installer, under 'Resources->Services' I install the following service, it works, ...
