A user of one of our applications is running into the following error
when runnnig the InstallShield setup program (Express Delphi 2 edition):

"unable to create a directory under c:\progra~1\borland\rs_run32.
Please check your access rights to this directory."

Any idea what this is about. This is the first time anyone has brought
up this problem. The same install has worked for other users.

Thanks.

make sure that there are no parentheses in the path names you are trying
to create. I got the same error installing on some of my machines, and
using names without parentheses worked around.

You might want to check if this is being installed on an NT machine. I
realise that ReportSmith is a Win31 program, but...

If the machine in question is NT and an administrator has locked down
the Program Files directories from non-administrator installations, you
would see the error message you're seeing.
