Hi!
We are developing a 16-bit Delphi app that will be installed
with another 16bit app and the BDE under Windows 95.

Now, the InstallShield version coming with Delphi 2.0.
don’t seem to be able to modify the ini-files and install the 16-bit
DBE.

So --- what should we do?

Should we get the Professional version of InstallShield ?
Can 16-bit apps read from the registry?
What about the BDE?

You can get an evaluation copy of the IS Express Professional from the
InstallShield Express web site (http://www.installshield.com/express).
This version will be able to create a 16-bit as well a 32-bit installation.
I recommend that you use this version.

And would we then lose anything from the custom Delphi version?
