The recommended way to create a custom action is with the Custom Action Wizard. The wizard walks you through all the required steps to create a custom action and prompts for information. You can also create your custom action in the Custom Actions and Sequences view (or the Custom Actions view)—without using this wizard—by configuring all of its settings directly in the view.
To add a custom action:
||In the View List under Behavior and Logic, click Custom Actions and Sequences (in Basic MSI, InstallScript MSI, MSI Database, and Transform projects) or Custom Actions (in DIM, Merge Module, and MSM Database projects).
||Right-click the Custom Actions explorer and then click the type of custom action that you want to add.
||Rename the new custom action by selecting it, pressing the F2 key, and typing the new name.
To learn about displaying action information on the progress dialog and in the installation’s log file, see Using Action Text.
