Hi Lifein8one3...

Let's see if System File Checker will help...

Click Start then Run...type sfc /scannow (Note the space between sfc and /) and press "Enter". You will be asked for your installation cd, so have it handy. Wait for the scan to finish (this might take up to an hour). When it's finished, click Start then Run...type chkdsk /r (Again...note the space) and reboot when prompted (type Y and press Enter). This will run on boot-up so restart will take a while...be patient.

Go to programme files, create a new folder called

InstallShield Installation Information

Right click it, click properties and set the attributes to read only and also hidden, click apply, close programme files

Download and install this

http://www.filehippo...d_everest_home/

If it installs, check the folder you created in programme files

I have the same problem with Installshield. After I downloaded Everest what am I supposed to see in the InstallShield Information folder? Mine has a dozen entries that look like Registry Keys.
