I compiled and ran in test mode.
I displayed a MSG box before the end to show content of a variable and
after clicking OK,
- the setup just looped on a blank wizard window with
three buttons [Print][back][ok][cancel]

Cancel was greyed out and top right system _ [_] X were also greyed.

I did not get to the "Install Finished" window.

Running WinXPpro on AMD.
I closed all programs.

After Ctrl-Alt-Del where I killed the setup.exe

problem 2:
- When I re-opened SB5 the vertical menu bar with the two (mouseOver) buttons
[Project Explorer] and [Script Editor] was positioned just in from the left edge of
the active window, partly covering the script. When first run, it had been on the
right side of the monitor.

This was my first look at SB5 and I am very impressed. Looking great! :)

Thank you!

Could you please send me the script (.sb5)?

Problem 2 is caused by the Microsoft MDI bug :-( During the last three weeks we have developed another "multi-thread resizing" algorithm. It will be included in the 5.0.805 build and I hope this fixes the problem.

Thanks again,
