I want do install my Software two times on one PC.
The Standart Installation Shield Setup can't do that.
It offers me to repair or delete the Programm, but not to install it a second time.
How can I handle this?????
Is there a facility to do so????
Help me, plese!!!

By default, Windows Installer does not support multiple installations, at least not without disabling the uninstaller. (MSI on XP and Server 2003 does support multiple instances, as described in the MSI Help Library.)

If you're just starting a project and need multiple instance support, InstallScript projects support this option.

whne you say disable the uninstaller, is this a global setting or just for the installed package?

If it is only for the installed package how do you do this?

It's just for a single package; see the MSI Help Library topic "How do I add and remove an application and leave no trace in the registry?"
