When you have an idea of how to improve the product, and the idea crossed multiple products, where to go? Then again, I do not see any suggestion box.

Where is the suggestion box?

Since the string table is inside of the IDE now, why not have the ability to determine what string entries are reference in the script that do not exist in the string table, and vice versa? It is embarrasing to miss testing every single possible string table entry, and having a messageBox appear to the user, (Invalid string table entry). It could be a seperate entry on the build menu, or, give the ability to make it automatic with every build.

The suggestion box is here: www.installshield.com/feedback.

(As far as the script goes, you might look at the LoadStringFromStringTable function, which returns an error code instead of showing an end-user dialog box if the string isn't there.)

I like my idea better. The LoadStringFromStringTable function
is a function that you have to call every time. My idea is less code.
