hi,
i'm using Installshield 11 priemear edition in that how we can isolate a file that present in a component.

Here in my .ism one dll file is there in systemfolder when i build the msi and trying to install in the test pc it is showing an error

like already the same file is present in the systemfolder.

for that i need to isolate that dll in wisepackage studio means we just isolate the component which that contain the file,but in

the Installshield 11 priemear i didn't find that option to isolate the component/file.

so kindly guide me...

Use the Application Isolation Wizard (AIW.EXE) provided in AdminStudio as one of the standalone tools.

Click Start .. AdminStudio .. AdminStudio Tools .. Application Isolation Wizard and follow the prompts

The Wizard only accepts files of .MSI, .MSM or .EXE format, so you would need to compile your ISM to an MSI first.

What criteria did you use to decide to include the isolated file rather than use the existing one? And presumably this is a file which is protected by Windows?

Do NOT include "vbscript.dll" in your package.
Remove it and problem solved.

Is the company you work for getting paid for you to do this? As the client, I'd be bloody petrified of the dross that company must be pushing out. Not only do you not have the first clue about packaging, you're not even aware of basic Windows configuration.

Scary...
