$ not accepted as part of a password


I have a problem using $ as part of a password during "get user input".

For example, when I enter Pa$$word123 as the password and immediately display the password, the InstallAnywhere displays Paword123, so it removes 2 $$ in the input.

Is there a way to let InstallAnywhere accept $ in the password?

Thanks a lot for your help.

I did more testing. If there is 1 $ in the password, it worked, but if I have 2 $ together, it didn't work.

It seems to me that this is a bug in InstallAnywhere. It should definitely be fixed.

Let me know if I am wrong.

Thanks for your help in advance.

I think this is a technical limitation, as for IA $ is a special character. I think this issue has been discussed before.
