Open URL (website) after file extraction with custom action - SOLVED

I know it should be very simple to open a website in default browser after exe has been unpacked, but do not see an action for it, nor can I find any info in docs.

Would it be possible to get example?

My exe file is “portable type” and extracts into temp directory. After extraction I need website to open with some help files and such.

Thanks in advance.

Sure, you can do this:

Open the Custom Action Editor, select After File Extraction event and add a new custom action Open a document file (doc:

Then in its properties:

  • Filename = the URL you want to open
  • Operation = open

That’s all

Thanks! I knew it had to be easy but not that easy:)

Seems like the easiest things always stump me.
