There are a couple of ways to achieve this in InstallScript.

You could use StrFind to determine the location of the ';' and then use StrSub to extract the two strings using that location. Your other option is to use StrGetTokens to do this for you, and then loop through the string list access the strngs. More information on string functions can be found in the InstallShield help library under "String Functions".
