Windows 2003 password field problem

I am using InstallDialogue with InstallShield professional 7. I have made a custom dialog with a password field (edit box with the password attribute set). When the install is run instead of asterisks or round bullets (xp style) you get vertical bars for the password mask. Does anyone know how to fix this???? I have contacted InstallDialogue's support but haven't heard anything back yet.

Can you try to set the password character to something different? I guess it's trying to use some character or font that doesn't exist on your machine. Have you tried this on a different machine?

Sounds like an encoding problem. What is the regional settings on the computers where this problem occurs? I have seen similar problems in other applications if support for other language encodings or alphabets are installed. If you can assign a character to be used you might try to use one that is guaranteed to be in the lower ASCII range.
