I'm trying to create an installation setup with more than 5000 folders and each folder has at least one or more files. Total size is approximately 350 MB. When we drag and drop the source folder on our local filesystem to the Application Data - Files and Folders - Destination Computer's folder, InstallShield is taking several hours to perform this task. InstallShield is running on a 2.4 GB MHz computer with 512 MB of RAM.

Please advice me how to optimize this procedure .

(Moved topic to the appropriate forum)

A few things you can try:
- in Tools -> Options uncheck "Enforde Setup Best Practices"
- make sure the files are on the local hard disk
- make sure any anti-virus software is disabled
