Hi All, :thumbsup:

Can anyone tell me;

1. What the C:\Program Files\Installshield Installation Information folder used for?

2. Why do I need installation information after I have installed the program refered to in the ini file found in each sub-folder?

3. What will happen if I delete the sub-folders?

Thanks in anticipation.

This folder contains information about each application (primarily the path, I think) you have installed. Deleting this folder, or any of its contents, may make it difficult to uninstall it later.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
