Jamie,

Thanks for your help.
Could you send me a copy of script? I want to use it to check the property
setting.

It's attached. You will need cscript to run it. If you don't have that you
need to download MS scripting host from MS. I am certain this is your
problem, for an experiement I set the DisableMsi property on my machine,
then got the exact same error you mentioned when I try to run an MSI file.
If you copy me when you post I will get back to you quicker.
HTH, jamie

I'm having a problem with a user who is trying to install our Installshield Express 3 setup on a Win2k SP2 machine. He has full admin permissions. He's getting the error message that the following files cannot be replaced: msvcrt40.dll, itirco.dll, and itss.dll. After clicking through these messages, setup finishes. The application does not appear in the start menu or in Add/Remove Software.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

This is probably because those files are under System File Protection (SFP). To verify this ask him to manually try and delete or rename these three files (the ones that are originally on his machine). After a refresh if the files are still on the machine, that means these are under SFP.

When the message comes up, does he press Ignore or Abort. Or is it just an OK box that comes up?

The user gets a OK/Cancel dialog.

How do I deal with the file protection?

Thanks!

There is nothing much we can do about the system file protection. One possible solution would be to make these files install on all OS's but Win2K. I don't know however whether these files are on all Win2K machines. You could do a little research at http://support.microsoft.com/servicedesks/fileversion/dllinfo.asp?fr=0&sd=msdn
