I solved the problem myself.It's a path problem, it's too long (windows bug), just make an alias for the temp path created by installshield.You can do that using SUBST or sharing the path and then mounting it on a netwotk drive, then, rename to a short name the directory where the setup.exe file was extracted, finally execute the setup.exe file and that's it.Good luck.Camilo.
