I have a DLL based CA that displays a dialog, but I cannot get the HWND of the parent window(the MSIEXEC.exe). Does any body have any suggestions?

Can't you use FindWindow?

You might have to run a couple of tests to find the class but as you can only have one installer on the go at any time, I'd have thought it was quite easy.

If that doesn't work the maybe there's a clever way to use MsiSetInternalUI (though I've never really understood what that does exactly).
