Where are the pre-built dialogs

In the documentation i see that InstallAware comes with 265 pre-built dialogs in comparison to 66 of Installshield. Great but where are they? I am especially looking for a SQL Server connection dialog.

I found the many dialogs of the different themes but I don't hope that they only added the same dialogs of different themes to count to 265 :wink:

Yes, the pre-built dialogs include the themes. Unlike InstallShield, InstallAware's themes are not a change of graphics...each theme is unique and has different numbers of dialogs and different controls exposed on each dialog.

In addition, you can look at the pre-built samples. Each sample uses dialogs from a different theme and also offers customized dialogs. For instance, the SQL Server sample contains a pre-built connection dialog based off of the Official Theme.

Is there an easy way to see what the themes look like to know which one to choose?

Use the theme samplers in the Start Menu group.
