Thanks Yahia

I discovered the problem.
In Installshield Express V5.0, under General Information, you enter [ProgramFilesFolder]
I had a space AFTER My App Name.
Not only did the installation fail, this caused corrupt folders (tried a number of times) on my computer.
The Folders created by Installshield (to write out the setup files etc when build to CD Rom) could not be deleted by Installshield when I rebuilt, causing an error in the build.
Windows failed to delete them using Windows Explorer.

Solutions:
a) Remove the trailing space in Installshiled
b) Delete corrupted files from the DOS command prompt using RD /s command
