I have a problem with InstallShield Express 1.1 and Win 95. The
development was done in VB4.

Somewhere along the line a version of \windows\system\DDEML.dll has been
replaced with a file with a newer date. The version number (4.00.950) is
the same, but the date is different (actual date varies).

The common link between the systems having the problem is installshield.
The error occurs at the beginning of the install program and on several
subsequent reboots.

The install does not include this file.

I could really use anyone's help as IS tech support couldn't help me yet
(they're supposed to email me back).

Thanks,

Dave

I have seen this many times before with a variety of different possible
causes. The only thing that has been common on all of them is that the
clocks are set to automatically adjust for daylight savings time. Microsoft
has even acknowledges a feature with this program that under certain
circumstances can change the date and time stamp on files.

I don't know if that helps at all, but at least someone else in the world
has seen it. I usually like that just to prove that I am not going crazy.
