I have installed WinInstall LT v5 which came free with Windows 2000 Server. The application I'm trying to create a MSI from comes as a InstallSheild EXE. When I run the after shot process I get the following error:   " error:invalid name for .REG file" Any suggestions?????

Hi compdigit44

Have you tried exporting the msi from the installshield exe, sometimes when you start the program an MSI will appear within the temp directory.  You may also try setup.exe /v" /a" to create an administrative install which usually only has an MSI to run.

Hope that helps.

Cheers
