Building installation project with serial number validation using VSI, Orca, C++, or Delphi

In a Visual Studio Installer (VSI) project, we can add a Customer Information dialog box in the user interface. This dialog box has an input field for a serial number. There is minimal support for validating this field in visual studio; and unfortunately there are only few articles talking about how to include custom code to validate the serial number that is entered by the user. This article provides the necessary steps to do custom validation in VSI setup projects using external DLL file written in C++ or Delphi and I'll give two demos in both C++ and Delphi.
