Trick InstallShield Windows Version?
Posted 11 July 2003 - 04:20
It "requires" Windows XP, but I am very confident that it would work on 2000, but they artificially imposed the XP requirement.
Can someone help me with this?

However, I have two ideas. One is this hack program called "Tweak NT" which supposedly will temporarily adjust the version number of an OS, so you can try Googling your way across that. You could also try modifying the registry directly for this same affect. Not sure of the location though, but someone's gonna try and get back to me on that.

Tweak NT didnt do it. It only changes between server and pro versions. That would be handy (I have the original NTtune, or whatever, somewhere..).
I'll keep checking back here periodically.
Thanks for your help,

|Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00|
"ProductName"="Microsoft Windows XP"
WARNING: Be sure to _backup_ this area before importing these values, so that later on you can properly restore your system back to normal!!!
Of course I haven't tested this, but these should be the main registry entries, so hope it helps.

Thanks for your help, and if you do run across anything in the future, please remember me .
I'll keep checking back, and if I figure it out, I'll post it here.

Get a decompiler, extract the compiled script from the install package, decompile it and check what the OS check does ...
But this night be very confusing, because the decompiler produces code that is not easy to be read ...
The preferred way would be:
a ) buy Windows XP
b ) get the older DVD Software that runs on Win2k
c ) use Intervideo's support
