I will do some reading on that, thanks.  I have not been able to get it to work that way, so someone suggested to have it run on the Close button on the exit dialog.  That works, but I don't like doing it that way.

If you want a custom action to be run at the very end of a successful installation I would consider authoring it as a ‘commit’ action to be run at the end of the InstallExecuteSequence. That way it will only run if the installation finishes successfully, and it will also run at the end of a silent install.

> The custom action in question is the UpdateRemotingConfigFile one.  I also tried InstallFinalize instead of FinishedForm.  With InstallFinalize nothing happens, with FinishedForm I get an error that I should use a different action.
> error LGHT0177: The InstallUISequence table contains an action 'UpdateRemotingConfigFile' that is scheduled to come before or after action 'FinishedForm', which is a special action which only occurs when the installer terminates.  These special actions can be identified by their negative sequence numbers.  Please schedule the action 'UpdateRemotingConfigFile' to come before or after a different action.
