Hi there,

using Wix and Designer for WiX Toolset to create a setup project.
After a silent installation of a Addin Express MSI Project I have to start Outlook automaticly.
I can get the path to the outlook.exe from registry.

But how to start Outlook after setup?
I think it is a setting in User Interface.
Can't find a possibility

Thank you for asisstent

Hello Reinhard,

There's no such option in the UI.

You can create a custom action DLL in the code of which you locate and run OUTLOOK.EXE, see e.g. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3172406/create-custom-action-to-start-application-and-exit-installer.
