I need to launch an exe at the end of the installation process. I understand that it has to be done in the CustomEvent table using Orca. But i dont know how to create the dll. MSDN talks of a tutorial.dll, but i cant find it.
Please could u guide me as to how do i go about launching teh .exe/

You don't need a DLL to launch an exe. You only need to populate the CustomAction table to create a custom action that launches your EXE, and add this custom action to the InstallExecute sequence (or you call it via a DoAction control event when a dialog button is pressed)
