I have an MSI and MST. It all runs fine except when it is done installing you are prompted for a License File. If I manually copy the needed license file to c:\documents & settings\All Users\Applications\MyApp before I run the MSI/MST then when I do run my MSI/MST I do Not see the license dialog at the end.

So my question is how do you make your .MST copy a file first, before anything else happens? Where in the .MST do you place that? Someplace on the MSI SCRIPT Tab I assume but there are so many places you can place this.

As per this statement, I think after completing installation you are prompted for liscence file. So just copy that file before installation completes. In deferred mode, before install finalize.

The license dialog is almost certainly being presented under the control of a Custom Action which will almost certainly be sequenced after the InstallFiles action, so why not simply add the file to the MST? It will then get installed with all the other files.
