I'm trying to make a MSI out of the original netsetup of Progress OpenEdge network client 10.0a.
Original it's a setup.exe developed using InstallShield 7.0.

Why repackage?
The original netsetup is depending on being installed from where the OpenEdge server is installed.
And I don't care much for ISS-files.

I also want to add the property PROGRESS_SERVER="<share / driveletter>" to the MSI to make the package independent of the server.

I have made about 100 snapshots using InstallShield AdminStudio6 and also tried WinInstall, but always the same result.

It works fine for the loged on user, but when I starts a program using runas and the program is dependent of the OpenEdge client it returns some errors.

"Error occured while creating CONTROL-FRAME: CtrlFrame.
Ugyldig klassestreng.
Error code: 0x800401f3 (5898)"

"**Unable to realise CONTROL-FRAME widget. (4025)"

"Unknown error code 1 for attribute NAME of the CONTROL-FRAME widget. (4104)"

"Unable to set attribute NAME in widget of type CONTROL-FRAME. (3131)"

I have tried to use filemon and regmon to discover any dependencies that are missing but can't find anything.
I have looked things in registry, especially HKCU settings but can't find anything.

I can/must have missed something but what??

When installed from the original setup the program runs fine, even when using runas.

I'd be most greateful for any support.
