If you don't want to accept blank input, you may want to compare the IA result variable with the $NULL$ value, and in case this was what the end user entered send them back to the previous panel.

In the Pre-Install task, right after your Input Panel, you should use a Display Message, with the following Rule: Check IA variable, your $USER_INPUT_IA_VARIABLE$ equals $NULL$ then display a meaningful message to the end user and return to the previous panel (i.e. the one asking for the input).

Only a Custom Code panel will allow the desired behavior. In what I was offering, the user couldn't by pass your panel unless they entered a non-null value.

1) You may add a Display Message Panel (To show the error)
2) Add a rule to the panel Compare InstallAnywhere variable
($USER_INPUT_RESULTS$ equals $NULL$ ) where $USER_INPUT_RESULTS$ is Results Variable of the corresponding field that you want to validate

If it is working for "Get user input-Advanced", then it should work for "Get user input-simple" as well. I can not say what is wrong without going thru your project.
Anyways since "Get user input-Advanced" is working for you, why don't you use the same?
Why you want to use "Get user input-Simple"?
You can achieve the same functionality with "Get user input-Advanced" as well.
So my suggestion is instead of debugging what is wrong with "Get user input-Simple", just go ahead and use what is working for you i.e "Get user input-Advanced".
