Solution 1

Here is one I made with Inno Setup: Inno Setup Script to Change a C# Forms Configuration[^]

Another option would be to create a ClickOnce custom installer, see: Walkthrough: Creating a Custom Installer for a ClickOnce Application | Microsoft Docs[^]
Although ClickOnce applications are easy, they have some disadvantages like not being able to execute things that require administrator rights.

In the free version of InstallShield it is not possible to create custom dialogs, see: InstallShield: Leading Windows Installation Development Solution[^]
