I'm having a similar problem as stated previously here:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinXP/Q_20413185.html

Installshield hangs when i try to install somewhat older software, and, when i go to TaskManager, wowexec & ntvdm are running when they usually aren't.  I tried to follow some of the instructions listed in the old question, but i don't have my xp cd, sony neglected to include it with my new cpu (XP Home, SP1), so i was wondering what other options i could try.  i tried deleting/moving the InstallShield folder, but that didn't work.  I also tried using the compatibility wizard, and had no luck with that.  i hope i don't have to reinstall xp, but i'm open for suggestions.  anybody who can help i'd appreciate it.  :)

Installshield kept hanging when I was attempting to install my SBC DSL software and a google search uncovered the following, which worked for me. Even if their main idea doesn't work, the extensive list of what didn't work for them may give you some help.

Good luck.

I tried the print spooler directions, but that didn't have any effect on the installshield hang

....looks like they'd tried a lot of different things as well, : (
