View Full Version : Visual Studio Service Pack 1 Considerations

I received the Visual Studio 97 Service Pack 1 CD-ROM from Microsoft today.

I am using VB 5.0 Professional Edition and Installshield Express 2.01.

I noticed that the Service Pack 1 CD setup appeared to replace a number of
Visual Basic 5.0 files. I am wondering if there are consequently any
changes that should be made to my InstallShield Express configuration to
take account of the Service Pack 1 changes.

I am thinking that there may be files that IS Express will install that
will reflect the pre-Service Pack 1 VB 5 setup, while VB 5 itself has some
new versions of files that won't make it into an InstallShield
Express-created setup. Is this possible?

I suppose I am asking whether InstallShield Express has the ability by
itself to adapt and account for these changed files that were installed by
SP 1, if indeed these changed files impact on InstallShield Express in any
way that is significant.

Express will work fine as long as the filenames remain the same
and if no additional files are required. Did you have any problems
in getting an VB5 SP1 app installed ?
