Hmm... I'm trying to understand what might go wrong.

Here's the check from the wizard's installer:

  IfFileExists $INSTDIR\search.htm Installed
    SetAutoClose true
    MessageBox MB_OK|MB_ICONEXCLAMATION "Unable to find installation
of Dave's Quick Search Deskbar.$\n$\nPlease install the latest version
of Dave's Quick Search Deskbar."

    ... do installation here...

IfFileExists checks if the file is on disk, and if so, sets the
Installed flag. Otherwise it drops down to the body of the check,
which shows a message and aborts. A little backward...

This forum discussion:

hints that Windows 7 filesystem redirection might cause trouble, but
I'm not sure what the workaround is. It's hard to tell without knowing
the value of $INSTDIR. Do you get to choose an install directory when
you start the installer?

I can't seem to build the wizard, I don't think I have the right build
tools installed anymore, so it's hard for me to debug.
