Non AutoIT GUI Background Picture

Recommended Posts


Is there a way to set an application window background from a BMP, like GUICtrlCreatePic function (but not with an AutoIT GUI, just an MSI installation window). I have searched but I have not hit on the path I need. FYI, if it seems silly to do this, blame my end users & management. Basically, as the silent (qb!) MSI install window is visible, they would like the background of the installation window to correspond to the application being installed (Adobe, etc.)

I'm looking for pointers, not a consultant to write the code for me.

If you need to change background image in external application then look at

_SendMessage($hWnd, $STM_SETIMAGE, $IMAGE_BITMAP, $hBitmap)

There are examples on the forum for this.

I could be wrong but I think that Varian's problem is absence of background image therefore sending STM_SETIMAGE message to something that's not there is unlikely to help him/her. Edited by trancexx
