I'm still having problems doing a 16-bit installation. Even though that
problem was supposed to be fixed in IS Express Pro 1.1, I'm still getting
an error when installing my application on a machine that didn't have a
BDE previously installed. The installation can't merge the IDAPI
configuration file. I'm getting pretty desperate, as I MUST have a
working installation ready in the next few days.

Please someone HELP!!! :-)

The problem still exists here also (but not on all machines!). We found
out that a simple reboot of the system clears all problems after
installation, when the merging-error occurs.

So you have a workaround, hopefully IS will come up with a working 1.2
Version (do say really read this stuff at all....?!) Sometime it looks
to me that the only person at InstallShield Corp. reading the newsgroups
in fact is the news-server...
