How to Make a New Dialog Pack?

Hi there,

I'm pretty decent with creating Vista-style icons. I thought it would be cool to make a Vista-style look for people to use, with the whole smoked glass and rounded effects. Is there any special trick to putting such a package together? Or would I just need to post the .miaf files for the dialogs as a ZIP?

InstallAware rocks and my deployment has been so much easier since switching from InstallShield.

All you have to do is replicate the contents of one of the theme folders inside InstallAware\\dialogs in your own theme. The folder should contain all the necessary dialogs (those that are in your own theme, of course), and also a bitmap which can be shown as a preview.

You can then go ahead and distribute your new theme :) We're looking forward to it!
