  • Displaying Screens when calling one project from another

    I made a simple project with only two screens to be used to select installing various other SF projects. It works great.

    But when the selected project is changing screens, the FINISH screen from the starting project is displayed. It looks very confusing to be flicking that image in between each screen change. Is there some way to avoid that look? Should I just let the first project end, and not wait for the selected project to finish?

    I'm sorry, I don't think that I understand what you are referring to. Are you launching a second installation from the first one? If you don't want this FINISH screen to be visible, could you not remove that screen or place a condition as to whether or not to display it? I can't really picture what is happening. Perhaps a little more of an explanation will help me to understand. Also, are you using SF6?

      The finish screen is displayed from the first project, then the new screen is displayed, when that screen is done it is removed and the finish screen is displayed for a brief moment while the next screen is displayed in project 2. The last action on the after actions is what was starting the second project. My intent was to embed it between the after actions and the shutdown actions and run the second project.

      What I finally did, was to chain the projects and just finish the first one and start the second. It works.

      My general intent was installing a demo package with an optional set of demo data. The second install was to install the demo data, if the user wanted it, but if not the package was able to be installed without it.

      I guess my timing of the commands was poor.

      Thank you for your response. I think I have the problem licked with a different approach.
