  • Problems Installing Expression Offline on Windows 98 Systems

    Problem

    I keep running into an error trying to install Expression Off-line .

    Solution

    The InstallShield Express crash seems to be related to the Microsoft Intellimouse (the one with the wheel).  If you disable the wheel driver, the install works.  A procedure for doing this is: Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the "Close Program" dialog box.  Find "Mswheel" and select it.  Click "End Task".  Other wheel-based input devices (e.g., Logitech) may also have the problem, but they don't use Mswheel; for these systems, you may need to switch to a standard mouse driver temporarily.
