Maybe try that.
I was about to install the Service pack but will wait.

Anyone have any thoughts/experience about InstallAnywhere? After dealing with InstallShield for 3 years we are ready to SWITCH.

I do not see that I have to do their Product Evaluation. - I expect a Product that doesn't show harmfull errors at all. And if I find such, I expect an easy way to tell this to them and I expect fast Bugfixes.
It seems that Installshield feel so good in it's Market Position that they prefer loosing a few Customers than investing in Product Development and Support.
As this is on our Cost, I intend to have a more close look on a well know Competitor Product now. - Maybe they still feel more linked to the Customer.

i have to agree with all of you. i have found three bugs in the past week that have needed workarounds or have no solution. i work for a very large software development firm that puts emphasis on SUPPORT, TESTING, and CLIENTS. i have found that InstallShield does not perform adequeate testing, does not update their KB with known issues, and does not respond with anything useful in their replies to support requests.
i have had to produce, workaround after workaround, and all but abandon all native functionalities in IS version 7.0 projects. i have only been using the product for almost a year, and picked it up very quickly, however i have been forced to come up with my own solutions to problems that are native to their product.
many times i have thought that i would waste less time, and gain more benefit (reusability and efficiency) if i wrote my own installation creating tool.
newbies beware, this is a bear of a product to work with.
