How to show a message after my extension installed?

Hello friends,

I wanted to show a message to the user after my installation is installed, but it seems the `Message` method does not do the job in a codeunit with subtype=install. The code runs without error, but there is no message dialog shown. Anyone who has an idea can help? Thank you very much!

    Hi, just a idea, is it possible to consider writing your Message in Global events? This message can be displayed the next time the user logs in.
    But it is best to record whether this message has popped up in User Setup, otherwise it will be displayed every time the user logs in.


    Hope this helps.

    We currently do not have dedicated Dev support via the Dynamics 365 Business Central forums, but I wanted to provide you some additional resources to assist. If you need assistance with debugging or coding I would recommend discussing this on one of our communities.

    I will open this up to the community in case they have something to add.
