Okay, I have worked with the trial of InstallShield for Windows installer
and have had great success until the date expire on the Windows installer
(NOT the trial version of ISWi!). I downloaded the Platform SDK onto my work
compute which had the same distribution file version for MSI and the date
was expired there, too.

SO...where can I get the most recent version of MSI to install on client
machines? I have search Microsoft high and low, even in MSDN online and
Sitebuilder network, but nothing! Anyone?Anyone?

Hi,

I don't have an answer for you (sorry). I just wanted to let you know that
there is a discussion board about MSI and other upcoming technologies on
InstallSite. Maybe someone there can help you.

You won't. Not at the moment anyway. The ISWi program has been removed from
the website until Microsoft releases a new component.

Hello All,

Check out the ISWi web site for more information. We have a new release
(build 281) available for existing beta testers and EEP members.

I downloaded ISWI283.EXE from the FTP site, but have not been able to get a
password because the InstallShield Website has been 'too busy' for 3 days
now. Anyone got any suggestions about what's going on with the website or
got the password?

Thanks,
Paul.

To date:

1) Downloaded one version that wasn't smart enough to recognize that it
couldn't work on certain builds of Win2K. Endless frustration.
2) Installed latest build of Win2K.
3) Found out that the ISWI version still didn't work worth a damn.
4) Downloaded the latest build.
5) Finally got a working ISWI version... only to find that "working" is
defined as "typical InstallShield functionality".

My advice: don't worry about no password. They're doing you a service by
stopping you using ISWI.
