Hi,

I tested the install of my product on WinNt sp6a (support pack) and while extracting files from the exe, Install Shield creates a temporary directory C:\disk1 and extracts all the *.cab, .exe, .ini and .inx files in that directory and then gives an error message for each of the files that "This file already exists, the setup will abort now!!" and after exiting for 4-5 times, the install goes through.

Is it a bug in Support pack sp6a or a problem with Install Shield? This disk1 directory is not geting created on Win XP and Win 2k.

Has anyone else faced this problem and can if yes then what is the work around?

Thanks for your efforts and time.
