There's a bug that's mentioned in this thread that's supposedly fixed in 6.2.

http://community.installshield.com/showthread.php?threadid=47543&highlight=ctor.dll

I'm using 6.3.1 and I'm still seeing this behavior still on XP installs only. When I launch a sub-installer from a parent using DoInstall() , the refcounts in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SharedDLLs aren't being updated by the sub-installer. Actually, they are being updated at the beginning of the sub-installer and then re-drecremented before the end of the sub-install.

Is this a known issue? Is there any workaround besides upgrading to pro 7.0 (assuming it's fixed there).

Thanks,
Noah
