I'm trying to install the High-performance Embedded Workshop V.4.04.01 (2000/XP compatible) on my modified 2003 [s]Server[/s]Workstation and I'm being told my 2003 isn't adequate.

Bull.

So, to get past these perceived inadequacies, I need help faking out the Installer. I've already unpacked using UniExtract (wonderful program), and I have the "Disk1" folder right in front of me. I'm not an InstallShield guru by any means, so I need your help yanking out the OS check. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Well, I won't pretend I'm anything but a noob.This is not something I'm used to.

I've got plenty of tools: XN Resource Editor, Notepad++, UniExtract, but this is unfamiliar territory for me. Where would I find it?

Bear in mind: This is not my software. I don't have access to the original install scripts. I'm just trying to get it to work on my OS.

EDIT:
OK, maybe this will help you help me. It's not MSI-based as best I can tell.
It's a CAB based installer. I've got 2 data#.cabs (data1, data2) which I extracted into a sub folder. I also extracted engine32.cab into it's own folder.

sounds like you are kinda outta luck man, but you could fake out the installshield instlallation (look at the ini file entry CheckifWrongOS or something) or repackage the whole thing into a new project file if you can get the path from a lst file or something. let us know how it goes.

The only thing that comes to my mind to be able to fool the installer that the OS is another one would be to use ACT (Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit).
