View Full Version : IS does not configure Alias path when setting up BDE Alias

I got a problem, the matching article in the knowledge base is gone.

Trying to set up a BDE alias with Install Shield Express for Borland C++ Builder 5 does not work.
The path always looks something like this:

Does anybody know how to get this to work?

Thank yall!

Do you mean specifying a property as [INSTALLDIR] but it not being resolved once the Alias is installed? If so this has been fixed in Express 3.53 which will be available very soon.

Hello, again!

Yes, this is my problem.
But I am using version 2.12. Is there any patch or upgrade for my version or will I have to purchase a completely new version of InstallShield Express?
And how soon is very soon? Days, weeks, months?

Thank you a lot!

Express 3.53 should be out this week. I'm really not sure about the upgrade inforamtion, but you can email sales@installshield.com for more information regarding that. You could try searching our Knowledge Base or making a posting in the "Installshield Express - Delphi" group (link is in the main page). Someone using Express 2.x might have a work around for this.
