    how to install multiple instances of the same app

    we have enabled the custom setup-types on our InstallShieldExpress3.53 installer. The customers can specify the location for where the app is to be installed. However, the installer will only run one time on a computer.

    How can we modify the installer to allow the customers to run the installer multiple times, each time specifying a different install directory, on the same computer?

    The goal is to have up to three instances of our app installed.

    I'm afraid this is not possible with InstallShield Express. This is because the Windows Installer does not support side-by-side installs (multiple installs of the same project). This means it's not possible using InstallShield Developer either.
