show different htmlinstaller page on uninstall

Feb 15, 2011 at 8:54 AM

since I am working on a "installation wizard" htmlinstaller configuration I came across the problem that DNI shows the same dialog(s) on install and uninstall. This is not really what user would expect.
In DotNetInstaller.exe each element had "showOnInstall" and "showOnUnInstall" setting in the configuration.xml file. I think that is not enough when it comes to htmlinstaller?

Is there another way of showing different "page" on uninstall? An idea would be to show "index.html" on install and "indexuninstall" on uninstall. Any other (currently implemented) solutions?

I think that this will need work. I am not sure whether the order of loading actually would let you show a different index page, but alternate paths from the index page (and maybe redirections) is certainly in scope. Basically, file a feature request to start.

I created a feature request http://dotnetinstaller.codeplex.com/workitem/8347

I hope it gets implemented in near future.
