Uninstalling Installshield

Q: Uninstalling Installshield

Hi Everybody, pretty much a noobie here, so I hope this is in the right place to post this.I have InstallShield pre-installed on my HP, and there is no uninstall for it, and it doesnt show up in add/remove programs, the programs it used to update, Sonic/WinDvd/HoyleI am doing myself, so I dont want it on my machine (and it is a MacroVision program)It runs on startup: issch.exe, ISUSPM.exe, agent.exe(this agent.exe is really from InstallShield){I need to add that to bleepings startup listing)http://support.installshield.com/kb/view.a...ticleid=Q106234This is what HP told me to do to get rid of it, after much back and forth with them.my Question is: does this method look ok to everybody, and where can a relative beginner getin trouble using this method of removal?ThankYougc

Preferred Solution: Uninstalling Installshield

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Uninstalling Installshield

Hi Varoom.I have InstallShield pre-installed on my HP, and there is no uninstall for it, and it doesnt show up in add/remove programsEvery windows system has it and there is not supposed to be an Add\Remove option, it's an integral part of windows. If you remove it you will no longer be able to Add or Remove anything. You might as well make a door stop out of your system. The MSI installer cleanup utility is meant to be used in case the current installer is screwed up. After you run the utility you must reinstall the MS installer engine.Unless I'm missing something in your post, just disable the startup items, reboot and remove the software you no longer want. Could you elaborate a little more on why you want to do what you're doing?

Just started installing software on a new Windows 7 64 bit box. I uninstalled a useless extra utility program that came with my mobo. The program was unisntalled however every time I boot windows, an empty instalshield window with a blank button appears. If I click on the button the window closes or if I close the window by clicking on the red all seems well. I found that the process causing this window is ISUSPM.exe*32 which is InstallShield Update Service Update Manager using task manager.

How do I stop this process from spawning a window every time I boot?

Hi All,

I created .msi file with InstallShield X Basic MSI package.
I used custom dialogs and custom actions. For this requires InstallShield Scripting Engine to run this file. And This file I got ISScript101.zip. This is manual way of installing the scripting engine.
This is working fine on systems where ISScript engine has been installed,

But I need to avoid manually installing scripting engine, ISScript engine should be installed as part of MSI installation.
I need to include .msm file with this package. I included installshieldscriptingengine.msm file with version 10.01.

But it's not working, when i am installing this package in, any Windows Operating System.

What should I requires to do? How to proceed?

case where DLG_ERR.--- showing error "Unable to display dialog box. Setup canceled",

I have NAV 2004 installed. Two weeks ago, updated it using LiveUpdate, and it has ceased to operate. Purchased NAV 2007, tried to install it, but NAV 2007 directs me to uninstall NAV 2004 using Add/Remove Programs. I have tried to uninstall NAV 2004 using Add/Remove Programs, to no avail.

I am aware that I could use Norton's Removal Tool, but I am assuming that this would also uninstall Norton Partition Magic 8.0 -- and I've lost the installation CD (moved twice since then) for Partition Magic 8.0. Does anyone know of a way to uninstall NAV 2004, but leave Partition Magic 8.0 intact? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.


A:Uninstalling NAV 2004 w/o Uninstalling Norton Partion Magic 8.0

I would take a look at the 'tool.' You may be able to select what you want removed. S/N has changed itd recommended removal procedure many times. Below is the link to their currently recommended "tool.' It may or may not be the one you have in mind.

Having made a removal attempt otherwise may compromise the operation of the 'tool.' S/N has another 'tool' that is supposed to overcome encounterted problems with the primary 'too.'
So it goes with S/N!! They really don't want their "stuff" removed.

Hi guys,
I just bought an Abit NF7-S mobo, 2x256MB XMS3200 and an anthlon xo 2500+ and installed it all last night. Now I'm trouble installing the Nforce 2 chipset drivers. The installation package uses InstallShield, and whenever i try to install it, it extracts the file then says in an error message "The InstallShield Egine (iKernel.exe) Could not be lauched.
Error loading type library/DLL"
I need to know where I can download and reinstall InstallShield Wizard For Win 98. I've tried their site, but it's the fancy buisness installers that cost $, where can i get a plain one?

Hi all,

I had to go back to a restore point because of a driver issue with regards to my DVD Rom on my laptop. Now, however, when I startup my lappy2000 I have a new-and-improved problem. I had Napster (I know, stupid) and it came with Roxio Media 9 (evil). I Unistalled Napster a while ago and appearantly I did not get rid of Roxio completely. This was never an issue until I ran the system Restore...

So the problem:
When ever I startup my computer InstallShield starts to install Roxio9 Media Center. Well it is mostly gone so it is missing files and the install creates an Error. I don't want Roxio Installed but I can't figure out how to stop it. I have to Control/Alt/Delete to end the process otherwise it continues to loop. Even if I hit cancel it will just start installing again a few seconds later. I ran a file and registry cleaner and cleaned out anything and everything I could find pertaining to Roxio's software and yet once I reboot my PC it trys to install again. So I think there is some .exe files in InstallShiled Wizard (evil) that keeps running. How do I locate these and how can I stop this? I did notice a file C:/program Files/InstallShield Instillation Information but this files in here have no names and look like registry information so I didn't want to just start deleting stuff.

Is there any way to get this installation out of InstallShields 'queue' for lack of a better term? In addition this is preventing me from being able to install ot... Read more


fyi basically had to hunt and destroy every file relating to Roxio I could find and disable install shield in msconfig. Not sure if that is a bad thing but I can regularly check for updates myself I don't need installshield to do it for me. Programs seem to install fine sooo hopefully no problems.

This is in relation to the project that I have previously been posting about, it is almost done, and I have been looking through the InstallShield For C++. I have created a test installer for the program, but I can't get it to put anything into the start menu, or simply a shortcut onto the desktop... is anyone able to give me instructions on how to do this?

I can't install anything, and I suspect I won't be able to uninstall anything either.

I have searched the Internet for a solution and tried the suggestions, but it won't work.

What's happening is if I try to install a program the Install initialises, but when the progress bar comes up, even before it begins to do anything, i get an error saying "An installation support file could not be installed. Interface not registered."

I have tried:

Deleting the Engine folder.
Reinstalling the Engine from the InstallShield website - this obviously doesn't work because InstallShield doesn't work...
Deleting a registry key: "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{00020420-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\InprocServer32".

Another reply here suggested reinstalling IE, but I can't, as when I try to run the install file it says there is a newer version of IE6 already on my machine.

Is there anything else I can do?

What even caused it? I can't even try System Restore because I don't know when it was... I haven't installed anything in ages.

I am using an otherwise well-behaved (and clean) PC running XP sp2. I am the sole user.

The last successful instalation of anything was Windows Update last week, and the last third-party program was FirefoxDeploy and that was about a fortnight or so ago, but I don't know if that used InstallShield.

Please help! And Merry Christmas!!

Any help on how I can launch this file or find the missing dll would be appreciated.

Background: As of yesterday I am on a fresh Windows 7 installation, prior to that any game/program that used installshield took forever to install. It would literally sit there for about 45 minutes to an hour before the progress bar moves anywhere.

Now that I am on a fresh installation of Windows 7 I figured all my problems would be gone, boy was I wrong. I started to install Crysis, then got up to do something, I come back an hour later, 0 progress. Same thing with Star Wars: Republic Commando. Both use installshield.

Note: I am not getting errors, the progress bar just sits there.

Edit: after about 40 minutes, Republic commando decided to start installing, but the issue still stands that installshield would want nothing more that to just waste my time

I have installshield on my pc. My inspector programme tells me that it will no longer be updated and, therefore, it should be uninstalled (as a security measure).

I have a number of options.

Use a programme that removes the registry entries, but leaves the programmes on disk. There are references in the registry;
Switch-off automatic updates in the update manager (installshield);
white-list installshield in the inspector program.

The programme cannot be uninstalled in Programs and Features (not listed).
Evidently, I should not manually delete the programs.

I don't know what to do.

Advice please.


Perfect uninstaller and revounistaller will both force an uninstall (by removing the registry entries) as well as remove the files however they must be used with care. I don't know what software you are using but before you start following it's advise and uninstall everything that it lists as some kind of security threat you might want to research what you are removing to find out if it should be left alone. Take installshield-a simple google search shows what it is used for. It is used by developers to aid in the installation and removal of their programs which probably explains why it doesn't show up in programs and features. Therefore if you force an uninstall of installshield you could mess up other programs and find that you can't remove or maybe even use them. My advice to you is to leave installshield alone. Also take care when using any registry cleanup software because if it damages the registry you could start having windows or program errors or possibly not be able to boot into windows depending upon the level of damage.

Hi,I've had this problem occur with a number of software packages I've bought in the past. First of all, I should say it usually (though not always) appears to occur when the software name or part of its run-path contains spaces. I'm running Win XP Pro SP2, for info.I recently bought a piece of software and its setup file, when double-clicked, launches Installshield. However, Installshield opens an unexpected grey box with the following contained inside:Command line parameters:/L language ID/S Hide initialization dialogue. For silent mode use: /S/v/qn./V parameters to MsiExec.exe/UA<url to InstMsiA.exe>/UW<url to InstMsiW.exe>/UM<url to msi package>I don't know how to get around this and all I can do is click 'OK', the grey box closes and the installation ends.I've fiddled with things like changing the permissions of the file to be 'run in Win95 mode', which enables me to install the software, but then there are problems when it comes to running the software after installation.I'd prefer to fix the problem at the Installshield end, believing that a modern installation file should work simply by double-clicking when the user has the most up-to-date version of Windows out (or thereabouts anyway)!!!Anyone got any bright ideas? I've come across this problem so frequently, it must be a common problem for others!cym.My Webpage

I'm using Win98SE, when I run a setup file that I downloaded from the internet... it unpacks all the required files to install. Then right when it begins to go to the setup screen it comes up with this error message.

-Error Number: 0x80070725
Description: Incompatible version of the RPC stub.

Setup will now terminate.

This has happened with several program demos that I have downloaded. So my question is:

Is there something wrong with my InstallShield or is it the a problem with the setup file and... is there any way to fix this problem?

Thank You, Fran


Welcome to TSG!
It seems this problem occurs when the current version oleaut32.dll for your OS is overwritten by a newer copy or another third party version. Installshield looks to C:\Windows\System for its version and that will be the one to change.
You will have to extract a copy of oleaut32.dll from your Win98SE windows CD and replace the one in C:\Windows\System

The problem is this....when InstallShield Wizard begins it freezes half way throught the installation if not before that. We then have to restart the computer and of course the program is not installed. This happened recently with trying to install icq. It got almost right throught the installation and then froze while it was registering dll's. It also happened with a program called hotburn for burning cd's except this time the installation did not begin before it froze. I figure that installShield is the problem. How do i fix this?

Whenever I try to install ANYTHING that requires installshield, it gives me the following error.

The installshield engine (iKernel.exe) could not be launched. The RPC Server is unavailable.
I've tried everything that it came up with on my google search. Ikernel.exe is not in processes, the RPC service is "Running" in services. I've even tried to uninstall/reinstall via Command prompt, with no luck there.

I downloaded the ikernel update, and the irony in this is, the file requires installshield
Anyone have any fresh ideas I can try? I'm going mad here, it's downloaded programs, and even games I've purchased, and own original CD copys of. Nothing seems to want to install.

On a side note, everytime I want to use "Windows installer", I have to go into the damn services, and start it. Even when I set it to automatic, after reboot, it isn't auto anymore. Not sure if that could possibly tie together or not, but I figured I'd mention it in case.

My first thought would be to reboot the computer, download the file again, and make sure to right mouse click on the setup file and "Run as administrator."

If that fails, try to access support from the web site of the game you are downloading. Usually, they can provide more insite into specific error messages with their products.

So here is how it happened,

My computer was destroyed by a virus and was no longer able to load the operating system. So I booted from disk and reinstalled windows xp. I got by computer back on its feet and fixed everything but now whenever I start any installer that uses installshield, it just won't work properly. It shows the original splash screen with: Starting InstallShield Wizard..... but thats it it just stays there I've even left that on for two days and it still didn't make any progress. I can't even completely close it from the process window, theres always one installshield process left that won't end.
I've tried googleing it, wiping my temp folder, clearing internet cache, turned of anti-viruses,I have followed the instructions on the install shield support page(deleting folders and installing new ones), and even rebooting. Nothing that uses installshield will work properly aside from the splash screen.
So if you have anything in mind or any solution that I haven't tried yet please leave a reply because this is really annoying. Since I am pretty good with computers the instructions don't have to be step-by-step, if I have any questions I will leave a reply. Thank You in advance for your help. And I really like this site, I've fixed a lot of problems just reading the threads.

My temp folders are empty
I have tried deleting the engine folder then installing
I have tried to "update" the Ikernal engine (oooh but the geniuses they are, they use install shield to do that too, so screwed there [I hang on "Updating Ikernel engine on your system])

When I deleted it or renamed it. Anything I tried to do it would just say "Could not find file in blah directory" blah being the 'runtime' folder.

Any Ideas what I could do? - I am on windows XP professional SP2, Genuine Edition.
If anyone is on XP Pro, the files i replaced where from Home edition and IDK if there is anything different.

If anyone can pm me a file with your runtime files and maybe that will help. Not sure.

I'm trying to install football manager 2007.

I am running Windows 7 and my machine spec is fine but when I try to install it says: 'The installer was unable to run in graphical mode. Try running the installer in the -console or -silent flag.' I already have the latest java update.

I wondered if anybody would be able to help me with this?

The DVD drive is not working properly, and it APPEARS to be related to an error with Windows Installer. I can read files on a storage disk in the drive, but any install disk brings up "InstallShield Setup Launcher has encountered a problem and needs to close."

Windows XP SP3
CPU 2.93 GHz

I have done the following with no effect:
- Run Windows Install cleanup
- Downloaded and installed Windows Installer 4.5
- Made sure the Installer Service is set to Manual
- Scanned with AVG, Superantispyware, Spybot, and Advanced System Optimizer
- Made sure all Windows updates are updated

The last may provide a clue, however, if it's related. When running Windows Update, the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 and 3.5 Family Update will not install.

Please let me know what other information you may need to help me out. Thanks in advance.

The Windows Installer Service should be set to Automatic.

edit: Additionally, you can try this;

Unregister, then register the Windows Installer Service.

Click Start, Run.
Type msiexec.exe /unregister and click OK.
Click Start, Run.
Type msiexec.exe /regserver and click OK.
