InstallBuilder's <runProgram> action allows running the program in the background if & (&amp; in XML) is specified at the end of <programArguments> - this works in all places, not only <finalPageActionList>.

For example:

<runProgram> <program>${installdir}/setup.exe</program> <programArguments>&amp;</programArguments> </runProgram>
