I've wasted a lot of time on this, please help, thank you.

Custom pages aren't designed for installing files. You can make it work but it requires you to move the progressbar manually for each action you do (time consuming to code this).

The easier method is to just use an InstFiles page and Section/SectionEnd to house all the installer commands, and use SetAutoClose true to close the installer after it completes, and Exec to run an executable.

Doing a banner on that page is a bit trickier, you can write/use a plugin to create the banner space, and use the dimensions/position of the listbox to place it on the page nicely.
