Like the tittle says, Install Forge is not creating my installer properly, it drops a 646KB exe that won't even run, just stays invisible and consuming 50% of CPU and I must terminate the process via task manager. :|

And the installer doesn't have the custom icon I placed in the folder (The program never asks me for a custom .ico) :cry:

When I create the project, everything is just fine, when it's making the installer it doesn't show any error, the packing process is ok, but the output file is wrong. :?:

Running under Windows XP 32-bit SP3, I tried to make my installer while Panda Antivirus is on and off and still get the same result :x

What am I doing wrong? Can you post the detailed steps to create my installer?

Hello,

what is the total size of your installation files?

I managed to create my installer, but had to do it in my other PC with Windows 7 x64.

The folder size is 1,05GB (1.132.642.304 bytes), with 1.529 files and 75 subfolders.

Glad you found a solution. Please note that Windows XP is not officially supported for the Installation Builder Environment (however, the setups should run without any issues).
