SETUPWIZ.EXE problems

I am using VB5 and trying to run the Setup Application Wizard
(SETUPWIZ.EXE). When I try to open the program I get an error that reads:

"Invalid property value"
"An unexpected error has occurred"
Does anyone have an idea of what is wrong? I have searched Microsoft's
support website, but they don't seem to support VB5 any more.

Thank you.

I think I found the problem and the solution:

I recommend using InnoSetup instead as it is far more flexible and
customisable (and actively developed :)

Yes, I hear you - and I am using it almost always. But apparently there are
computers in Singapore that operate in Chinese that do not like INNO Setup
(I don't know why - no details given), thus I was forced to go back to
rotten old Microsoft, which works on them.

Thank you.

What a dandy little piece of obscure knowledge that is. There really is no end
to it, is there...
