Hi everybody!
While running an IS5 setup on WinXP prof. I get some messageboxes with the SEVERE icon and OK button, but no text at all.
This happens at standard functions like XCopyFile while SRCDIR and TARGETDIR are correct and the file is copied after clicking the OK-button.

Any ideas what may go wrong?
Has this got to do with file and directory management?
I am installing as user with admin rights ...

Any help would be appreciated.
Gruß / regards

I have had this problem on the other OS's as well.  What I have found with my installs, is that there is a memory leak somewhere.  You have to make sure that when you return a string from a function that you set it's size from the calling function.
  There is also a know InstallSheild issue with setting up the install info. Check this site for known issues against IS5.5.
