Default Thraex Installwizard

Looking at ways to avoid buying InstallShield again and have been trying out Thraex Installwizard. It seems to perform well with 32 & 64 bit installs for my VB6 Apps and work very smoothly, but I have a limited number of machines to try it on. I think it handles the 32-bit OCX problems in 64bit machines correctly putting them in SysWOW64. Curiously, I see no mention of it in any recent forum discussions. That worries me a bit. Looks like a cost-effective ($89) solution.
Is no one using Installwizard? Any problems with it?

Only problem I see so far is when a user installs a more recent version setup from Installwizard over their original purchase that was installed with InstallShield, Desktop shortcuts are duplicated and a dual entry shows up in the Uninstall list.

I will appreciate any opinions - George

I personnally use Inno Setup. Works with vbv6 and .net 2008, 2010. The duplicate icons usually come from not using the same guid in the setup or application files.
