To show the options button you can use

<BootstrapperApplicationRef Id="WixStandardBootstrapperApplication.RtfLicense">

Subject: [wix-users] Bootstrapper Customization



I am new to Wix. Building my first bootstrapper.  


Following Classic Wix Burn Theme, I modified the theme to add two check boxes.  They work if I add them to the Install page but don't show up if I add them to the Options page. - well, because the Options page never shows.  


I created a custom dialog based on the InstallDir dialog but I think I was barking up the wrong tree - that would work in the msi installer, not in the bootstrapper. Is that correct?


Is there a UI element for the bootstrapper?  

How do I control/force the appearance of the Options page?

Is it possible to show/hide a text box based on check box check/unchecked state?

How do I pass the value in the text box to the msi installer?  

I suspect I'll have to use a custom Bootstrapper application for that but just in case.
