Adding a Splash Page

The splash key modifier is used to indicate that the installer should show a splash screen.
The value of the splash key modifer represents the minimum amount of time to show the splash screen in milliseconds.
The image should be defined as a resource with the id of Splash.image.
The image can be any bitmap format such as png, jpg, jpeg, gif or bmp.
Note: Older installers using the <splash> tag will find that their splash image no longer appears. Please adapt this new syntax.
