Default Windows Installer with VS.NET 2003


I have a deployment project within the overwhole solution. At the moment , the installation goes smoothly and the application works well.
Problem arised (...as usual) when modification is needed in the user interface for the installation.

1. I have a 'Customer Information' dialog and another dialog with check-boxes. How and where can I save the user-entered values? (I have to use those values in the application)

2. I run an external execution file from the 'Register User' dialog, that gives the user the option to register during the installation (the user can also register later, but anyway that works fine!) how does that registration key can be saved to the not-yet-installed application? ... or somewhere else that the application can use later (registry???)

3. Is it possible to add or remove elements from the pre-configured dialogs ? -for example: add a checkbox to the 'Finished' dialog to launch the application upon successful installation.

I have Orca installed but it's better supplied with pain-killers for the headache it causes... ;)

Thanks a lot guys!
