Hi All:

I need to run some DOS commands the first time the user uses the application. These commands update data which is different for each user. How can I acheive this in WISE?

One way is to use Microsoft's "ActiveSetup" feature. this involves:

* Write this key during installation "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\[ProductCode]StubPath msiexec /fup [ProductCode]"

* Insert a custom action into your MSI that will run the necessary commands. To ensure this action only runs once per user you can sequence it with (Installed) - In this case it will not run for the user running the actual setup itself.

After installation the scripts will run on the first logon for each user.
