Setup Wizard asking odd question. Ideas?

It asks during the build of the setup of an application for LOCATE GDI and then LOCATE USER.  Asks each question about six times then gives up and builds an apparently perfectly good setup.exe group of files.  What are those prompts looking for and why do they not appear to matter?

You have used declarations for 16-bit WIN API not for 32bit

Check all API declarations of your code.

Thats got to be it.  But they do all include that 32 bit 16 bit like #IF WIN16 THEN verification logic (pasted them in out of some other source).   Yes of course VB5 does not EVER expect to run under 16 bit sho why leave that code in there even.

Hi!

This may be a wild ques but:

You must have read some DLL code and then used it in your exe project.
In DLL is possible to have ability to run on both platforms
and recon these automaticly, then 16bit applicaliton may use
same dll than 32bit version has.

First answer nailed it perfectly.  I removed the conditional #WIN16 If statement and declares and away the prompts went.  Never caused any problem because the IF WIN16 test failed and the code would never execute at runtime of course.

Thanks
