Question about InstallShield Update Service Version 3
I need to go back and install an application that is using Installshield 3. I've tried installing it on a NT4 (VM), a windows 2000, and XP and all produce the same error on file Setup.INS. The script was created using installshield3. Recompile the script using Installshield SDK. I am not a developer. I've been trying to find an answer on google for about 12 hours. Other than finding that Installshield was sold twice in the last 8 years (I think) I have gained little else. The Setup.INS file has a date of 8/20/1999. What do I need to do to install this app? Thanks in advance for your answers.
I didn't get a solution but the project was dropped. I don't have to do this install.

Tips for a great answer:
Installation or uninstallation of an application or game fails and gives the following error code:
This issue is due to a previous installation not finishing properly
Solution 1. Rename the Installshield folder
Make sure you've enabled Show hidden files and folders.
Find and rename the Installshield folder:
Windows 32-bit: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Installshield
Windows 64-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Installshield
If there is an Installshield file in the Common Files folder, rename that one also (e.g. to Installshield_OLD).
Solution 2. Remove all traces of previous uninstall
If renaming the Installshield folder had no effect, find and delete any traces of uninstalled applications.
Alternatively, do a manual clean-up:
Close all running programs. Then clear the Temp folder (found via input of %temp% in Start > Search or Start > Run).
Use the Windows registry editor to delete registry entries related to the program.
Restart the computer.
hope this helps
