You write: 'some PC's', what is the difference between the machine's working and not working ? W98 and NT or so ?
At what stage the error occurs ?

With some PC's',I intended either NT and 9x.
Error occurs immediatly after the end of the bootstrapper section.
Log file reports:
NOTE: Now spawning the main Setup program 'Setup1.exe'....

*** ERROR: Type mismatch
*** ERROR: An unexpected setup error occurred!

WOW !
The only thing I can think of is re-installing VB, rebuild the package and try again !

GOOD LUCK !

Go to the "regional settings" in the "control panel" and set your short date format to "m/d/yy" and your decimal symbol to ".". Once done, rebuild your package and redeploy.

Look at this line from one of my Setup.lst (I have randomly taken one).

File3=@STDOLE2.TLB,$(WinSysPathSysFile),$(TLBRegister),,3/8/99 12:02:26 PM,17920,2.40.4275.1

Here's your:
File4=@STDOLE2.TLB,$(WinSysPathSysFile),$(TLBRegister),,3/8/99 12.02.26 PM,17920,2.40.4275.1

See any differences? Look at the hour separator. Go back to the control panel and change it to «:».

I've changed hour separator but with no positive results.
Curious thing is that this problem occurs only on some PCs independently from OS installed.
Problem seems occur at the end of the bootstrapper section

I have found something else in this section (just after the bootstrapper as you indicate):

[IconGroups]
Group0=Phonema
PrivateGroup0=Falso
Parent0=$(Programs)

Change «Falso» for «False» .
