Thank you for your answer.

I couldnít find any stdole files in my C:\Windows\System32 folder.
Iíve read the article http://support.installshield.com/kb/view.a...ticleid=Q108122, but I donít know how to fix this problem. In the Microsoft DLL Help Database are a lot of stdole files.
Please, could you tell me exactly what I should do in order to fix the problem.

Thank you again.

What operating system32 are you running?

Do you have any STDOLE files C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache? If so you can try and copy those into C:\Windows\System32 and see if it fixes the problem.
