MSE-iT Setup Bootstrapper first Demo

I've just released a small demo, with only two pages. The background and the software box are merged together with the new support of 32bit bitmaps with alpha channel.

The background drawing consists of four overlapped bitmaps:
  1. dialog background bitmap
    It displays the general background and the logo. Alle background elments who are immutable.
  2. page background bitmap
    It displays the background for a page. It is alpha blended over the dialog background, and contains only the additional elements for the page background
  3. dialog background localized bitmap
    It displays text and other things, which are different for every language, but immutable for the dialog.
  4. page background localized background
    It displays text and other things, which are different for every language and page.
You can download and test the bootstrapper here:

I’m impressed, I must say. Very rarely do I come across a blog that’s both informative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your blog is important; the issue is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. Lotus Tuning
