    Exclamation Error 1406 in Wizzard InstallShield

    I have started to eval InstallShield Express for a few days. I tried to make a installation with one of my programs (0,98mb) and when i install it gives me 2 errors:

    1. Error 1406. The value VersionMinor could not be written at key \Products\...\InstallProperties. Please check that you have sufficient access to the key.
    2.same error key \Software\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\{8.....}

    The program works but if i hit Ignore.

    I have administrator rights.
    I don't know what to do.

    You will want to create and analyze the installation log, before contacting mySupport for assistance.

    Verify your version number has only numbers (like 1.23.4567 - no letters)

    This error occurs when the Product Version field within Express contains an alphanumeric value. As per the Windows Installer Service requirement, the product version of setup packages should be a numeric value separated by periods.
