Use Enhanced User Interface

The Enhanced User Interface improves and extends the controls that you can use when designing the installation interface. It also enables you to customize Pre-install UI dialogs shown by the EXE Bootstrapper. You can read more about the requirements and benefits of this options in Enhanced User Interface page.

Always (install, uninstall and maintenance)

Enhanced UI will be used when installing the application as well as when performing "Modify" or "Uninstall" from Control Panel.

NoteThis option requires the “Override Windows Installer programs list entry” option to be enabled in Product Details Tab.

Only on install

Enhanced UI will be used only when installing the application. During "Modify" or "Uninstall" from Control Panel the Windows Installer rendering will be used.

Never

Windows Installer rendering will always be used.

Use WinUI rendering

Installation UI will be rendered using the modern WinUI controls instead of the classic Win32 controls. You can read more about the requirements and benefits of this options in Enhanced User Interface page.

Use custom frame only if Aero Glass is not available

If this checkbox is enabled the custom frame selected in the Themes Page will be used only if Aero Glass is not available on Windows Vista or later, otherwise the Glass frame will be used.

TipThis option is available only if a custom frame is selected for the currently used theme.

Images Scalling

In this section you have the option to specify how the images will be displayed: with fixed or variable size.

Adaptive stretching, based on detected system DPI

The images will be rendered as you would have the option "Use image control intrinsic setting" enabled if the DPI from the machine where the package is installing is at normal scale, i.e. 100%. If the DPI is larger the images will be rendered as if the option "Always stretch images to fit their control window bounds" is enabled.

Use image control intrinsic setting

The images will be stretched or kept at original size, based on the value of the parameter "Fixed Image Size", that you can set for each image independently from Dialog Editor page.

TipAt least an Enterprise project is required.

Always use original image sizes, regardless of control window bounds

The images will be rendered always at their original size, no matter if the image is smaller or larger then the control hosting it, ignoring the value of the attribute "Fixed Image Size".

Always stretch images to fit their control window bounds

The image will be always stretched to fit the control, ignoring the value of the attribute "Fixed Image Size".

This option will not affect the installation dialog's appearance if the fonts on the user's computer have normal size.
