Hi all,

I am creating a msi file for Visual Basic project. In this msi project, Under the user interface option i am adding the "Customer Information" wizard. But i want to restrict the user to proceed only if he enter a valid serial number. How can i check the user data? And allow him to continue if it is a valid seriral number or i want to display an error message. This is my first project with Visual studio installer. So if anyone can explain it in details then it will be very helpful forme. Please help me in this i am totally stuck on this. Please help me

Thanks in advance

You can use a DLL to verify the license key entered, and then use the return value from the DLL to set a windows installer property. This property can then be used as a condition to open the next dialog in the sequence.
