Hi I’m using (well trying to use) the install shield version which came with Delphi 7... however when I build my project I get the following error for each of the 3 folders full of images I’m trying to include in the build.

** Error: -1007: Cannot copy source

What are the possible causes + fix's

Thanks

David

Hi there,

I'm not sure about the error, it could be that you are not pointing the installshield compiler to the right directory...

Another option to try is another installshield program : InnoSetup.
Downloadable from : http://www.jrsoftware.org/isdl.php

This is a free program, with all the functionality you'll need to create a decent installshield for your application.

Thanks robin, that program works excellently and is much less confusing than installshield
