Did you create the .iss file? Or is it from the vendor?

I suspect there's going to be something with the 64bit OS that the provided .iss doesn't handle.

Can you install manually on the Windows 7 box?

If you can then create a new .iss file for your Windows 7 box using the information on this page: http://kb.flexerasoftware.com/doc/Helpnet/installshield12helplib/IHelpSetup_EXECmdLine.htm

You'll need the -r or /r option.

Test on Windows 7, then test on XP - if it doesn't work on XP then you'll need a different .iss files for 32bit and 64bit targets.

You can open the .iss file in notepad and compare the two, you should notice some differences.

Hope that points you in the right direction,

  • Thanks you are right!
    i opened the iss file from XP and the ISS i created for Windows 7 and there were a diference in file locations and folders that Win 7 was missing, i used the application Nopad ++ plus the compare plugin. I made the changes and it worked!
  • Great! Glad I could help.
  • Dunnpy, I am using the corrected ISS file but now i am getting a result code of -3.
    can you please advise what this could be?
  • Is it that it was working and isn't now? It was nearly a month ago you said it was working :)

    Not sure what that error is, but if you interpret it as a standard Windows error (3) it could mean that the specified path is not found.
