Installshield Express falls over with an Access violation when using a
long (as in loooooooooooong) path name.
Problem repro'd in NT and 95.

Set up a long path name on your drive, say 140 characters or so.Put an
...exe file in that directory. Fire up Installshield Express
Drag your .exe onto 'Program Files' in the InstallShield dialog. Access
violation.

I noticed the cross-posting just after I posted my reply. I am using
IS 5.5. I know nothing about IS 6.

Wayne,
Thanks for your response. I am sure they are working very hard to speed
up the install creation process for developers. =0}

We have made a number of performance improvements and fixed some memory
leaks. Anyone volunteering to try out a beta version of it to see if it
better or not?

Send me an email at madhavig@installshield.com.
