InstallShield 2014 » InstallScript Language Reference

The SdInit function prepares an installation for Sd dialog function calls by loading required resource strings, restoring the installation’s window if it is minimized, and specifying Windows 95-style check boxes in Sd dialogs.

Note: This function is called automatically by each Sd function. It is unnecessary to call SdInit explicitly unless your script calls DialogSetInfo before calling any of the Sd dialog functions. In that case, your script must call SdInit before it calls DialogSetInfo—otherwise the call to DialogSetInfo has no effect.
