The main installer window gets positioned so that the bottom falls below the screen. I have a parameter page which contains quite a lot of information, and so I've increased the height of the installer window by setting height project property to 600. It seems that InstallBuilder auto-positions the window to the center of the screen for the default height and width. Can I control the initial position so that the user doesn't have to move the window to see the buttons at the bottom?

We have this problem on Windows 7 / 2008. We use latest InstallBuilder 8.5.2, Enterprise edition.

The centering of the window is done by taking primary screen's width and height and requested installer window width and height.

What platform is this happening on? If Linux, what is your desktop and/or window manager. Also, what version and flavor (Professional, Qt or Enterprise) of InstallBuilder is this?

I have just doublechecked and there seems to be no issues. Are you using single or multiple displays on your Windows? what is the screen size, taskbar settings etc?

Does this happen on all Windows 7 / Windows 2008 or just some installations of it?

Also, can you post a screenshot of the installer window?
