There is an option to disable the modify option on subsequent uses of setup - it says for win2k. But at least on NT, when you re-run setup, you get the modify, repair, remove options no matter what you do. Is there a way to disable the modify option in this dialog? My current setup is simple enough not to need modification.

The properties you are referring to are for the Win2K Add/Remove Programs applet and NOT for your Setup you create. So specifying "Disable Remove" in your setup will disable the "Remove" button on the Win2K Add/Remove Programs when your program is selected.

I'm afraid you cannot disable the modify option in the "Maintenance Type" through Express. You will have to manually edit the msi file to achieve this.

FYI - InstallShield Developer 7 comes with an extremely powerful Dialog Editor which allows you create new dialogs or edit existing ones and include them in the Setup as you wish. It also gives you the option of having a completely script driven UI.
