"An error occured while downloading the file http://www.installengine.com/vert05/dotnetfx/dotnetfx.exe"
What would you like to do

[Retry] [Cancel]

1) Dotnet is already installed
2) Retry doesn't help
3) Cancel simply closes the setup

Any idea's? server busy? I turned off my firewall but it doen't help.

Ping www.installengine.com turns up, but request gives time-out

Running WinXP 64 bit pro on AMD dual athlon.
Plenty mem & diskspace.
Admin rights.

WAN trough ADSL connection which obvioulsy works, as I was able to downloade ISX12 and add this message ;>

Please try downloading:

.NET 2.0
.NET 2.0 J#

and it will resolve this error message.

So I guess setup script of installshield did not detect I am running WinXP 64 bit pro an tried downloading the wrong dotnetfx.exe

After installing .net 2.0 redist, it successfully downloaded and installed J#

And installation completed.. :) :)

I have no idea which version of InstallShield I am operating on, but the program info. was updated as of Feb. 2003 if that helps. I am running on Windows 2000 Professional and this computer used to be a part of a network, but is now free standing. Everytime i try to install a new program (Word Perfect 12 especially), InstallShield gives me "Error 1606" and is still looking for the server. How do I get rid of any traces of the former server and/or bypass this problem? PLEASE HELP!

You might want to try the solution that is described in this article:

If that does not resolve the problem, you'll need to contact the software vendor.
