Our Bootstrapper consuming Burn is of 70MB, containing Net Framework 4, VC Runtimes and two more pre-requisites + Product.msi itself. Whenever we execute it from a network location, it took much longer time to execute (last time it was almost 40 seconds . We suspect that such delay is due to extraction of files in local Temp folder before displaying its first UI.

So can we override some event in Managed Bootstrapper to show some message or progress bar while it is initializing itself?
How to display a progress bar while extracting packages whenever we execute Burn exe package?

Thanks a bunch...

Afraid I don't use the Managed Bootstrapper, I'd try the wix-users mail list.

Actually, I was trying to know if base native code class have any such functionality which I would be able to use in my Managed Bootstrapper.

Rob, replied on wix-user's thread.. so, I'll be following that for now...

Thanks anyway..
