Does anyone know how to install ISX 4 without getting Install Shield for Borland C++ Builder 6 Limited Edition deleted? The ISX 4 installer removes it during installation.

I'm afraid this is a limitation of the Windows Installer. It does not allow side-by-side installs of the same product (yet). I think the next version of Windows Installer will support this. So till then you can have only one version of Express on your machine. Sorry :(.

ISX 3.03 and ISX 4 are the same versions? That doesn't make sense!

Sorry. I mean you can't have different versions of the same product on one machine. When you install Express 4.0, it uninstalls all previous versions of Express. This is by design.

I have ISX 2.01 for Borland C++ Builder 3, ISX 2.02 for Borland C++ Builder 4, and ISX 3.03 for Borland C++ Builder 6 installed on the same machine!:)

That's because Express 2.x doesn't use the Windows Installer (go InstallScript!). So Express 2.x will co-exist with Express 3.x. I didn't want to mention this and complicate things any further. Bottom line is, you can have only one version of Express if it's version 3 or greater.

That's unfortunate. Thanks for your help.
