    On InstallShield for VC++6

    Hello, I have problems making the installation for my app. The problem is that I need to install some DLLs in the "shared files"directory: I can do that, but in the system registry the intallations count about that file isn't updated.

    If I try to update it "manually"(searching for the key and adding 1 to it's value) at the uninstallation step InstallShield removes the key as I created it=> asks to remove the shared DLLs.

    I need to update correctly the shared files intallation counter: can you help me?
