I'm using installshield and i've got a pure installscript project - and i'm trying to get the installer to register a VB6 ActiveX EXE upon installation.
how do i do this? i've already got the exe marked as "self-register". I'm using installshield 10.5 - and its building the installer just fine except for this thing.
If i run the installer on a blank machine - it installs everything but doesn't register the exe and when i fire up the main .exe of the application it throws an error. The first line of my application even calls shell("nameofexe.exe /REGISTER") but that doesn't work.
when i manually go to the command line on the machine, navigate to where the exe has been installed and then run nameofexe.exe /REGISTER - after that the installed application works perfectly.
