View Full Version : Error message: String "ID" was not found in string table

I am having problems installing new programs on my computer that use InstallShield. This started recently, and was first noted when trying to install Canon digital camera software. After an hour on the phone with Canon, they gave up. I have also have seen this problem tryong to install iPod update software. I have administrator privileges on my computer. I have Virus Scan Enterprise 8.0 on my machine, but I have disabled during install.

I get a series of error messages like the following when I run the installer... naturally it doesn't complete the process.

String _PRODUCT_NAME was not found in string table.
String _COMPANY_NAME was not found in string table.
String _LICENSE_FILE_AMERICA was not found in string table.

Many more error messages of the same type are seen...

Any ideas what I can do to fix this problem on my computer?

If you're having trouble installing software, you might look at InstallShield Consumer Central: http://consumer.installshield.com/.

I'm having exactly the same problem and I just can't solve it out.
Any help?
