hi all,

How can I change standard installer icon on the title bar, left of the [Product Name].  First of all, how can I generate a bitmap with extension ".ibd" and is it possible to use that bitmap for the title bar not for the dialog.

And if solution requires modifying .msi file, i need to compress all files into a setup.exe, so is it possible to first generate .msi and modify it and convert back it to .ism and generate .exe file? I have read some related notes in the forum, but still I can't get the point, maybe this is because I have never used ORCA or any other tool, isn't there any easy way to do that with ISWI 2.03?

I don't think you can change the icon in the upper left corner of the dialog caption bar. I believe it comes from the msiexec runtime engine.
You can change the bitmap that is displayed in the white banner on the dialogs.
As far as I know, an .ibd for that purpose would be a normal .bmp file renamed to .ibd
