IS Expr. 3.03 Crashes !!

Hi folks,

Currently I'm building a Setup for a product that contains some COM components in DLLs. When I add them to the project, IS properly detects that they contain registry info and it sets the Registration Type to "Extract COM Information".

The DLL files are not added using dynamic linking and they are on the local disk.
(First I used a networkdrive but with the same error)

However, when I then try to build the Setup, IS express crashes after the step
"FeaturesComponents table built successfully"

The error message is:
"iside.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows.
You need to restart the program"

This looks like a Dockter Watson error to me!
I'm working on a Windows 2000 Pro system with SP 3 installed.

I hope anyone recognises this situation and has a solution for it.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Jeroen,

I experienced exactly the same behaviour and Installshield Support apparently has no idea how to solve this error. Do you have found any solution meanwhile?

Are the components set to extract COM information at build? (not sure this setting exists in Express 3.0)
If you are using the German version of Express, have you tried version 3.04?
