How to display infomation panel before startup


I’m using some temporary ressources (%PBSFXPATH%) in order to install some dependencies.

This temporary ressources seem to be loaded before showing up the welcome screen or executing some custom actions

The problem is that I have 128 Mo of temporary ressources, so it take a while between launching installer and get the first screen, so user can believe in an application crash…

Is it a way to display a message before/during the temporary ressources unpacking ?


Temporary resources shouldn’t be that large. What about creating two packages: the standard one and another one that is used as a bootstrapper? Your bootstrapper could display a progress while unpacking the 180 MB temporary resources.
