Hi Marc,

When I first joined this list at the beginning of November I posted several
times offering to help out specifically with the NT install program using
InstallShield 5 Professional.  I developed the install programs for
NetTracker (a log file analyzer which, among other formats, analyzes Apache
logs).  I've been an InstallShield user since version 3 came out, and have
had to do quite a bit of what InstallShield considers "advanced" work.  I've
had to deal with all sorts of crap like creating custom DLLs to execute
code, custom DLLs to add dialog boxes, creating installs for both Intel/DEC
Alpha, etc.

Anyway, needless to say, I was ignored by all but Sameer in November, became
discouraged, and never did anything for the Apache Group.  Since November my
schedule has become much more hectic leaving me no time to work on external
projects.  However, I've already gone through quite a bit of head banging
with InstallShield and would be happy to help out by answering questions
about it, etc.
