Please see my other recent thread on this topic.
Our product has 55 files over 13 MB each, for a total over 722 MB, plus the program itself. Requires 2 CDs. InstallShield Express evidently splits one of the large files between the two CDs. This causes no problem whatever on a wide variety of OS's in a wide variety of international languages. However, the installation fails on just ONE machine. It stalls at the second CD while attempting to complete uncompressing the "split" file.

I am thinking that this singular CD drive is faulty, but in a peculiar way. Why would it read CD #1, but not CD #2 ?

In the meantime, is there a way to tell InstallShield NOT to split a file like that?
