The "DialogRemove" Command

This command allows you remove dialogs from the UI sequence. It is not general purpose and probably (at least for now) has these restrictions:

  1. The MSI should be "uisample.msi" based, this is what MAKEMSI uses "out of the box".

  2. It can't remove the first or last dialog in the UI sequence (so for example can't remove the "WelcomeDlg").

The command should fail with some sort of message if it gets into trouble.

This command takes these parameters:

EXAMPLE

The following code shows one way the "SetupTypeDlg" can be removed:

;--- Prevent "UISAMPLE" trying to manipulate the dialog deleted below -------
#define UISAMPLE_DISABLE_TYPICAL_SETUP N
#define "ME.MMH"

;--- Remove the dialog ------------------------------------------------------
<$DialogRemove "SetupTypeDlg">
