Hi Ivan
try this
a brilliant tool i found to help with installation problems is at this site and it is for free
it is called DllView
it is a utility which once u run it shows you all the processes running currnetly on the Pc. Then double click on your applicartions exe file and it will show uy exactly what dll's your entire Exe is using. Then when u use Install shield double check that you have those dll's listed in the distribution setup of the app. What is also great is that the DllView also shows u what versions of dll's your app is using.
There is also on this site a tool called filemon which does a similar thing put also shows you what files are being used nut i prefer the first one (Dllview)
Also run both tols on your pc and the target pc and then compare the results you might find the problem
well mate i hope this can give u some ideas to your woes

hope it helps
