Deploy problems on XP Home
Posted on 2004-04-19
I have a VB6 application packaged using Install Shield Express. It installs fine everywhere except for one machine. XP Home. The install gets to the point where it's 'ready to install'. Click Next, and the install progress bar moves. About 2/3 the way through, a windows installer box pops up and says 'Preparing to Install'. (It's a common message window.) It closes, then pops up again. Closes, and pops up again. Closes..... You have to force a shutdown, the tasks won't end and it keeps re-spawning the process endlessly and the application won't install. If you try to uninstall the program, that's all the installer does; popup the 'Preparing...' box and close it endlessly, not really doing anything.
Installshield doesn't seem to have any info on it. We do have 2 other XP Home machines that it does work on. Any ideas?
