Hi
I use ISX 2.01 with a Delphi 3 project type (on W95 ou NT).
Is some one could say to me why the <INSTALLDIR> (initialised with
<ProgramFilesDir>) is a 8.3 path (C:\PROGRA~1\...) instead of the long file
name (C:\Program Files\...)

If it's not dirrectly possible with ISX 2.01, how can i retrieve the long
path name from a short one with Win32 API ?

Thank you

Jean Luc, is this a 16-bit or a 32-bit installation? The 16-bit
installation will drop it in as C:\PROGRA~1\... the 32-bit should use
C:\Program Files\...

It shouldn't make a difference.

Ok. I did that twice and the installation still fails...

I got three of these to do.. what can I do to get this maintenance release
installed.
