Hi, I have one setup project that runs another one. I'm not sure that it has always been like this, but now, when the first setup calls the second, DoInstall returns -1 (not anything else). This happened on a Win2000 Advanced Server. It did not happen on my NT 4.0 Workstation. This is hardly a statistic, but this is what I have for testing. In both cases, the SRCDIR was a network path (\\computer\share\....).
I couldn't find anything in InstallShield KB. Any ideas?

We have seen a world of trouble with running other setups from network shares that are NOT mapped to drive letters. I do not know what causes it, but our solution was to always check for the '\\' at the start of the path and tell user to map a network drive letter first. Then it would work fine, when the networked drive was a letter.
