Insert Dialog in sequence (newbie)

How to - Insert Dialog between ReadyToInstall Dialog and SetupCompleteSuccess Dialog.
I am attempting to insert an information dialog (MyInfo Dialog)that will always show on install, and will show immediately before the SetupCompleteSuccess Dialog and after the ReadyToInstall Dialog.
I have tried to insert MyInfo Dialog in the User Interface sequence with the Sequence Num of -1, and then navigate to SetupCompleteSuccess from MyInfo. This works, but only on install. I end up loosing MyInfo and SetupCompleteSuccess on any other action; modify, repair, uninstall.
If MyInfo is removed and SetupCompleteSuccess is placed back into sequence with the Sequence Num of -1, the install behaves as expected.

if so, you may need change the SetupCompleteSuccess sequence in your interface sequnce to not be -1, and change your to be -1. You can then setup your next button to go to SetupCompleteSuccess after this.

>>You mean when the install is acutally executing, and install the files?
Yes. When I install, if my custom dialog is -1 and the next button navigates properly to SetupCompleteSuccess, the dialogs only appear in the original Install sequence only.

If you have a -1 set for your dialog, this will only appear when you install has finished.

Yes and no. <g> The 'Next" button is on my custom dialog. It's action is to spawn the SetupCompleteSuccess Dialog.

I do have -1 set for my custom dialog. It does appear when the install finishes, but only on the initial install. So, I will get when running the install for the first time 1. custom dialog, 2. click 'Next', 3. SetupCompleteSuccess. This is great, it's what I want, but on subsequent installs, repair, modify, etc. The above sequence is totally skipped.
