Excellent suggestions and thank you very much!!
The Event Viewer showed that we had modified our existing InstallShield project to remove several temporary directories no longer in use in our new application. The InstallShield script continued to maintain links to the temporary directories (e.g. "C:\Temp\Chinese") and was unable to find them. The updated IS script continued to look for these folders although they were no longer necessary and kept prompting the Windows Installer on the computer on which the new installation had occurred.
We added the temporary files back to the script and everything is back to normal.
Is there a way we can prevent this in the future?? Secrets to deleting temp files from the IS script??

From the SDK:
"...no automatic removal is triggered if the folders become empty. In contrast, folders created by the installer but not listed in this table are removed when they become empty".
