I would like to put a URL to the installed program on the Final Page of the installer. So far I have found it possible by setting "Installer.Installation.Finished.Text" to a custom value.

There are a couple of problems with that however.

There is no link highlighting, so it doesn't stand out too much on the Final Page. Is there any text highlighting possible when setting custom text like "Installer.Installation.Finished.Text"?

On the systems I've tested (Windows Vista, Linux) it isn't possible to cut and paste the text of the URL from the final page. Is this dependent on any other setting in the installer?

It would be nice if I could use a linkParameter but this does not seem possible on the final page. Is there a different way to make it work?

I don't wish to have an action to launch a web browser with the URL, as some of the systems that our product is installed on do not have a browser included. And in this case the user does not get the URL displayed to them.

Thanks.

It is not possible to place a link parameter in the final page. A posible solution for that would be to use a custom page instead:

<parameterGroup>
    <name>customFinalPage</name>
    <insertBefore>installationFinished</insertBefore>
    <parameterList>
      <linkParameter>
         <name>visitwebsite</name>
         <description>More information.</description>
         <clickedActionList>
            <launchBrowser url="http://example.com/more_information.html" />
         </clickedActionList>
      </linkParameter>
    </parameterList>
    <postShowPageActionList>
       <exit/>
    </postShowPageActionList>
</parameterGroup>

In any case, I believe the issue will be the same as when using the final page because if the target system does not have a browser installed, the link will also fail.
