View Full Version : locks in 16-bit "Registering Installed Files"

I create distribution disks for my VB4 16-bit app, and it get through the
install file, but when it come to the popup screen that says "registering
installed files" the system locks. I've tried it on my laptop, and other
systems running 3.1 or 3.11, and it locks in the same place. The setup
runs perfectly on the development machine which is running Win95. Any
clues on why this may have occurred?

All I know is that it is unable to register a control, and if the program
is run after the locked system is rebooted, there is no database access and
occasionally I get run-time error "336" (control registration error). The
32-bit counterpart has no such errors during installation.

Other than this, it's a wonderful product!

Thanks in advance!!

Jeff,

Try the installation on other Win3.x systems. How big is the .IWZ file?
You might want to checkout the Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q150946:
"Setup hangs while 'Updating System Files'". This article may reveal a
clue as to what is going on.
