If you are trying to run an old IAR Embedded Workbench product on Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7 you may get messages about missing dll's (CTL3D32.DLL, MFC42.DLL, MSVCP50.DLL, MSVCRT.DLL).
This is because Install-Shield decides not to install the mentioned dlls, presumably because Vista/7 is too new.
This Technical Note applies to products that uses the GUI : ew23.exe
The patch (link below) is required to make older versions of IAR Embedded Workbench run on Windows Vista.
If you are moving from an old PC to a new PC, (i.e. you do already have the product installed), then you can try to copy the whole installation from the old PC ot the new PC.
You also have to install the legacy License Management System (LMS1). One way to do this is to install a more modern version of IAR Embedded Workbench, then you get the dongle drivers + the IAR License Manager (LMS1) installed. If you can not do so, you need to install:
Dongle drivers from Technical Note 62867.
IAR License Manager from Technical Note 14255.
