I am converting my development machine to WinXP (it was W98SE). When I open my ISX (3.51) projects, there are many files not found since instead of a Windows directory I have WINNT as the main OS directory. Is there an easy way to convert all these references? I'm a lousy typist!

Also, I notice that some files used in W98 don't exist in WinXP environment (e.g. CRPAIG80.DLL is apparently replaced by CRPAIG.DLL???)

Unfortunately there is no way (that I know of) which will let you change these easily.

FYI - InstallShield Developer 7.0 has a feature named "Path Variables" which makes this easy. When you add a file you have the choice of giving it a path variable. Then in a situation like yours, you simply go to the Path Variables View and change the path the variable currently points to. In turn all the files are picked from the new definition.

Sorry about that :)

Bummer.... Maybe I need to look into that new version.

Tnaks for the response
