View Full Version : Multiple instance of IDriver.exe.. URGENT!!!!

Hi all,

I'm having a pretty big and annoying problem right now.

I'm trying to upgrade my application for the 16th time (so far nothing surprising). We perform full upgrades.
It has always worked perfectly fine.

But now it doesn't. Basically I build the project without any warning. If I install it on a clean PC it goes well.

But if I try to upgrade an old version of our soft it goes wrong. The installer starts and before I get the welcome dialog box Installshield creates an instance of IDriver.exe then 2 then 3 then 4.....

The only to get out of this is to restart the PC!
To give you an idea in 1 minutes it made about 50 instances of IDriver.exe!!!

What's wrong??????

Thanks for any suggestion!

That's definitely strange behavior! Have you tried running validation? This may point out any glaring errors in the MSI table that might contribute to this problem.

If this doesn't help, creating a log file of the installation may provide more specific details.
