I have a situation like this:
I created a compressed installation.
when I run setup.exe, and the disk is full, I get a message while extracting:
"1152: Error extracting C:\DOCUME~1\admin\LOCALS~1\Temp\{...}\...msi to the temporary location".

I want to show a different message when that error occurs.
Maybe there is a way to override the predefined run time error messages ?

Thanks a lot,

Stefan Krueger

I believe these texts are stored in language specific ini files, like 0x0409.ini. Editing them is easy if they are placed next to the setup.exe. But if everything is compressed inside setup.exe you may need to edit the template in C:\Program Files\InstallShield\<version>\Support
