What should be the size of the bmps used in the installer screens? I used a 500x70 sized bmp image as suggested in http://msdn2.microso...7sf(VS.80).aspx

Stiil the image is pixelated when viewed in a system with a desktop setup to use large fonts. Is there a way to avoid this? How do we make sure the image shows correctly in different desktop setups?

To get the correct size I would extract one of the existing bitmaps and use it as template. It depends on the size of your dialogs.
With large fonts I don't think you can get a smooth bitmaps. MSI doesn't support vector images.
