  The following links have proven to be of tremendous value to us in researching and staying abreast of the latest innovations and techniques related to the creation and maintenance of Installation Setups. Hope they help you!

InstallShield Knowledge Base The one place to go to see if the problem has already been reported and a fix or workaround is available.

InstallSite.org An excellent site that is maintained by Stefan Krueger of Germany. Sometimes this site has a better listing of known bugs than can be obtained from the InstallShield site. Excellent reference material and a great repository of neat code snippets that can be of benefit.

InstallShield NewsGroups An excellent starting point to research problems that don't have an official fix or workaround. The questions posed and answers provided may give you the vital clue to solving the problem. Understand that many answers are not provided by "true" InstallShield experts and many times must be taken with a grain of salt.

InstallShield Tips and Tricks Almost a hidden feature, this excellent collection of white papers deal with various tricks that are available for dealing with hard to resolve problems. Although it looks like the material is dated - specifically written for InstallShield products that are now 2-3 releases back, the material is still valuable.
