I still think this is a shitty way to treat your customers!

To install Delphi 4.0 on Windows NT 5.0b2 perform the following steps:

1. Manually  copy all the files from the subdirectories of the RunImage
directory on your CD to the directories indicated by the installation

2. Since the files will have their read-only attributes set you MUST remove
this attribute from all the files you copied to your HD.

3. Run the <cd>:\install\setup.exe program.

After theese 3 steps everything seems to be OK except for the VBroker part.

BTW: All the other installation programs i used yeasterday worked OK.
that isI have installed the following:
Office 97
Visual Studio 98
C++ Builder 3.0
Visio Professional 5.0
Corel Draw 7.0
RoboHelp 4.0
TeeChart Pro 4.01
QuickReport Pro 3.02
Luxent Apollo 4.x

Good luck!
