do these dlls overwrite system dlls?
is windows' system dll recovery active? maybe these files are copied and instantly replaced by the ones in a BACKUP directory?

Im not sure if any system dlls are being overwritten. I know that some of the DLL's are for crystal reports, and those DLL are not being installed. There is an older version of the crystal dll in the directory but it stays there after the install.
I'm not sure what the 'windows system dll recovery' is. Can you explain where to turn this on/off?
Thanks for the input.

sorry, i cannot tell you where to turn off the recovery of system dlls.
do you copy the dlls (using XCopyFile) or are they installed from the cab file?
can you debug to the function, where the copy tales place?
can you see whether they are copied and replaced afterwards or not even copied?
what error message or LAST_RESULT do you get?

look into the project settings, if the dlls are packed into a component. is this component active and processed by ComponentMoveData()?

Sorry it took so long to reply. I could not find XCopyFile() in the Setup.rul file. The DLLs are packed into a component but I could not find any reference to ComponentMoveData(). I also didn't know where to look.
I hope this helps
