    Error Winexec Failed return=87



    Help
    I using Install Shield Express V2.1 to set up a VB5 app.
    The disk build and test run work fine, but
    the setup file it creates gives me an error missing parameter.
    and the single file setup gives me winexec failed return = 87

    Thanks

    I too just received a call from someone running one of my 32-Bit installs
    and they get the same error. Only option is OK and then it's over - no
    install.

    Have used with no problem elsewhere. Mine is from a Single File Setup.

    Any pointers what return 87 means or what to ask about the destination
    machine to pinpoint the problem.

    Mine is not VB5 - generic, Powerbuilder code and EXE

    Single-file setup... include the /SMS option in your setup string.
