I can`t install the aplication because there is a problem
with install shield here , when the install shield start the
instalation and detect the operational system the
program shows an error:

"1608: Unable to create InstallDriver instance"

My OS is Windows 2000 Professional SP2 and i tried to
install after rebooting and it wasn`t sucessful with the
two versions avaiable 1.2.3 and 1.2.2

Thank you

    Sorry for the delay. I was very busy....I cannot verify the error
    message (all 15 Win2k machine on which I installed nmapwin
    did not show the error). This I found on the Installshield page:

    http://support.installshield.com/kb/view.asp?
    pcode=ALL&articleid=Q105819&source=support_central&prod
    uct=wind

    If this is not working, I will make a none-installshield version.
    Rgds

    Another hint i found:

    When attempting to install the software, the install fails half
    way through with an InstallShield 1608 Error. The installation
    ceases. As you can see byt the dialogues, this is an
    InstallShield bug. InstallShield is the product that we
    purchase and use to package our product for installation.
    Now here's the fix (prepare to jump into the loony bin): This
    problem only exists on systems that are not connected to a
    network. If you install "Client for Microsoft Networks" on any
    of your network adaptors such as a nic, dsl card, or modem,
    reboot, then the software will install. Something happens
    when you install Client for Microsoft Networks that puts the
    system into a state that makes InstallShield happy."

    Best regards
    Jens
