To create a custom dialog, you need to perform the following general steps:

1. Use the New Dialog Wizard to add a new custom dialog to your project. For more information, see Using the New Dialog Wizard to Add a New Custom Dialog to an InstallScript or InstallScript MSI Project.
2. Add controls to the dialog. For more information, see Adding a Control to a Dialog in an InstallScript or InstallScript MSI Project.
3. Create a script function that loads the dialog into memory, displays it on the screen, handles the end user's interaction with the dialog's controls, and closes the dialog when the user is finished with it. For more information, see Using InstallScript to Implement Custom Dialogs.
