I am new to install shield and I am using DevStudio 9. I haven't found a way to create an installscript project that meets my requirements(see below). I am wondering if the product can (1) fullfill my requirements or (2) if I need to use VB for what I need.

Requirements:
a. Install must prompt the INSTALLER for a virtual directory name and then create the virtual directory. I was able to create a virtual directory but can't change the 'dipslay name' at run time. I've tried using proerty manager and string tables but no luck there.

b. Install must create a COM+ package that consists of a couple DLLs. The package should run under an id/password supplied by the INSTALLER.

c. Install must create an Index Server catalog. The INSTALLER determines the location of the catalog, the location of the documents to be scanned, and the ID/password to access the documents.

d. Install must create a catalog in Linked Server
