Re: InstallShield 2019 R3 crashes on "Build Release"

@gcouch 

Can you create the key manually and set the values as mentioned in the previous comment.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\InstallShield\RegSpy

Then see the behavior with different key values.

RegKey absent.

But RegSpyUI.exe extracts COM information.

I use IS2019 R3 Prof.

Re: InstallShield 2019 R3 crashes on "Build Release"

When I create the registery entryHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\InstallShield\RegSpy\UseAPIRegistryHooks

and set the value to 1, my problem no longer occurs. Why exactly is this change is necessary?  Is this an indication of a problem with the file capicom.dll?

Is there a way to configure UseAPIRegistryHooks as part of the installation of InstallShield? Manually adding a registry entry seems like an archaic way to configure InstallShield to work with capicom.dll.

@gcouch ,

By default, installshied uses the latest methodology to extract COM information (ie Value "2"). In some cases, if the kernel driver methodology is not working, it can be switched back to the other methodology by changing the values in the registry.
