I am new to Installshield (installers in general), however I hope this crash is not due to me being green.

1) Create a new Installscript project
2) Go to "Installation Designer"
3) Go to "User Interface"
4) Double click "Dialogs"
5) Right click any dialog and select "edit"
6) Right click the same dialog again and select "clone"
7) Click on the newly created Dialog
8) Click on "Behavior"

Here is the error

Runtime Error!
Program C:\Program Files\InstallShield 11\System\isdev.exe
abnormal program termination

I am trying to create my own dialog boxes for my first installer (trying to create a custom Setup Type dialog). Any idea on why this is happening?

Hi Ron,
Thanks for pointing that out. I've submitted it to our development team to look at under the WO# 1-1B3BSJ. However for your information the Behavior tab should not be listed in non-Basic MSI projects, therefore you should not be working with this tab in an InstallScript project. All InstallScript dialog behavior is controlled by the InstallScript which backs the dialogs. This can be found at C:\Program Files\InstallShield 11\Script\isrt\src.
