how to create a custom message box

Hi All,,,

I'm creating MSI packages using Admin Studio and Install Designer without any problems, but I came up with an issue.

I want to create standard window / message box that will just tell users that it is a custm installation and that they shold not disconnect thier computers before the install is finished. I also want to have an OK button, which will point to my MSI script / batch and run the install for them afte they confirm. I already have batch files created but , I dont know what shoud I use to creat that dialog box, which tool?
Or should I create and exe file and put the mesage in the box?
What extension would that file have?

I looked into Active Directory GP but no luck. :(

Could someone please help me out there I would greatly appreciate that.

My two choices would be either to write a VBScript front end or use WiseScript. Macrovision has DemoShield but I think that might be overkill for what you need to do.
