Dr.Watson error on Winnt 40

I am using InstallShield Windows Installer v2.03 and instmsiw.exe v1.20.1827. When my installation starts to install on an WINNT 4.0 sp6 system I get a Dr.Watson error but after selecting OK on the Dr.Watson error dialog the installer continues just fine. I looked at the Dr.Watson log and it just states this is a Dr.Watson 4.00 log. There is no other information about where the error occurred or where it occurred. The Dr.Watson dialog states that it is in the MSIEXEC.exe. Has anyone seen this behavior?

Are you using the BDE Merge Module? In InstallShield Express 3.53, they added custom actions which call functions in BDEMerge.dll. This dll causes Dr. Watson errors on NT, similar to the problem you described.
