    I've recently formatted my PC and when installing ACDSee 5.0, I'm getting the above error message.

    I'm awaiting an answer from ACDSee after an exhaustive but fruitless search on-line.

    In the meantime, any ideas?

    Try throwing the word "InstallShield" into your search terms. It
    could be an InstallShield installer throwing the error.

    According to that link, InstallShield will report an Internal Error 2356,
    if it cannot locate a .cab (Cabinet) file it is looking for.

    If you take an application like 7-ZIP, it can "look inside" archives.
    For an InstallShield installer package, you may see two .cab files
    inside the installer. But if you attempt to open them with 7-ZIP
    (i.e. drill down inside), 7-ZIP refuses, as the cabinets aren't like
    regular .cab files already on your computer. Of course, the InstallShield
    installer can open them - the reason for the trickery, is to prevent
    users from examining the files inside the cabinet.

    (An archive Swiss army knife... This tool has no problem drilling down into
    regular .cab files.)

    Well, in this case, the InstallShield installer, cannot even find
    those .cab files. In that thread above, they mention corruption
    as a possible reason. As far as I know, InstallShield also saves some
    files on your machine, from run to run. And that raises the
    possibility, that some part of InstallShield already on your
    machine, could be responsible for the problem (that's just a
    guess on my part). So it might not be entirely the fault of the
    people at ACDSee.

    Paul, thanks very much indeed for your precious time and thought on this.
    It's just too complicated now so I think I'll use Irfanview from now on.
