InstallShield 2020

Project:This information applies to the following project types:

Basic MSI
InstallScript MSI
Merge Module
MSI Database
MSM Database

You can use the Custom Action Wizard to create a custom action or modify an existing one.

To launch the Custom Action Wizard:

1. 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).
2. Right-click the Custom Actions explorer and click Custom Action Wizard. The Custom Action Wizard launches.
3. Follow the wizard panels to create your custom action.

Alternatively, you can create a custom action in the Custom Actions and Sequences view (or the Custom Actions view) without using the Custom Action Wizard. For more information, see Creating Custom Actions in the Custom Actions and Sequences View (or the Custom Actions View).

To learn about displaying action information on the progress dialog and in the installation’s log file, see Using Action Text.
