Every time I install DisplayFusion, I receive the attached error message box.
I'm running Win XP x64 with SP2.

Very weird. At that point in the installation it tries to open the Welcome page for DisplayFusion. Does this welcome page open? What internet browser do you have set as your default?

Thanks,
Jon

I find that I receive this error when using Firefox as my default browser when the URL takes too long to open, but it does work eventually. Unfortunately there isn't much I can do about this problem, as it's part of the installer for which I don't have the source code.

Thanks for your answer. I'm actually using Firefox 2.0.0.7.
I guess the problem could be related to my 64-bit OS since [tt]ShellExecuteEx[/tt] sounds like an OS routine which is called. I understand that you didn't program the installer, so maybe the problem should be reported somewhere else?

I will be using an updated installer for the next release of DisplayFusion, so hopefully it will avoid this problem with the next release.
