Several users are reporting that their InstallShield authoring tool stops working immediately after starting it. Apparently this is caused by an incompatibilty with Microsoft update MS14-037 “Security update for Internet Explorer versions 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11” (KB2962872) which was distributed on this week’s Patch Turesday. Flexera is aware of the problem. A possible workaround is to uninstall the Windows patch, however this puts your system in an insecure, vulnerable state.
