Hi Eric,

you cannot clear the line with the file name. This is a known problem in
InstallShield.

Here are some suggestions to work around this problem:

A) Don't Enable(INDVFILESTATUS). Instead, add descriptions to your componets
in the IDE. These descriptions will show up in the first line of the
progress dialog.
B) Don't use the status dialog while installing services. Use SdShowMsg()
instead.

According to an answer by a InstallShield support person, the coding is
complete. It is in QA now. So I would guess that it is available in about a
month...

It is being QA'ed. So I guess there will be no beta since it is a
maintenance release, not a full release.

Are you sure it's going to take 30 days?

If you think of it, could you put a message here
with the ftp site when it becomes available.
I am sure many of us would be very thankful.
