PRB: Custom Setup Creates Too Many Program Groups

Article ID: Q101069
Creation Date: 04-JUL-1993
Revision Date: 11-MAR-1996 The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access Distribution Kit version 1.1

SYMPTOMS


Custom Setup creates a program group for each icon you install, and one additional empty program group. For example, if Custom Setup is supposed to create one program group containing two icons, Setup actually creates three program groups, only two of which contain an icon.

CAUSE


This behavior occurs if your application is being installed on a computer running Microsoft Windows 3.0, and the application name you specified in the last screen of the Custom Setup Wizard is longer than 24 characters.

RESOLUTION


Reduce the length of the program group name.

STATUS


This behavior no longer occurs in the Microsoft Access Developer's Toolkit version 2.0.

MORE INFORMATION


Steps to Reproduce Behavior


  1. Run the Setup Wizard.
  2. When the last screen prompts you for the name of the application, specify a name longer than 24 characters.
  3. Create the program disks and install the application on a computer running Windows 3.0.
