I've been having a lot of problems making an installation package for my AW
Utility (the property and people search bot) that installs correctly on
Windows 2000. I uploaded a new installation file for version 1.01 recently
that I believe works. If someone has a copy of Windows 2000 and would be
interested in seeing if the installation program functions correctly,
download the program at

Thanks for any help anyone could provide.

LoL why dont you just use winzip self extracter and just have it extract the
files somewhere? Who needs to get fancy? And maybe extract start menu crap
to c:\documents and settings\all users\start menu\programs\AW Utility or get the idea..

I run Win2k.. but I have yet to use VB and it work properly to install
right.. I can probably find my Installshield CD somewhere and I may be able
to create them for you.. or maybe give u the program somehow.. I think it
works fine..

Unfortunately, the program has to register OCX files, which is why the
former Ghost Installer file wasn't working, and why winzip wouldn't work.

There is a program to register ocx files. Most people on win2k are advanced
users (atleast it seems so) so you could include a registering program and
instructions if that is the case. Atleast for a temporary fix..I dont know
about installers very much so I cant give you help with that but if you used
winzip self extracter and a OCX register program included, that wouldn't be
to bad of an idea.

Still, the program I uploaded might work now because I installed a service
pack - maybe if someone tested it first, and if it didn't work, I could work
on what you suggested.
