I used groupsize too.
Check it twice.
one bad imported document can spoil whole doc.xml file - and all
documents imported into the doc.xml were rejected.

question about uninstall - if installshield uninstall does not work
(but it is strange) run from windows prompt command "regedit"
and look in HKeyLocalMachine - Software - Microsoft - Uninstall -
Install shield uninstall
or HKLM - software - microsoft-windows - uninstall (i do not know it

you will probably find uninstall string there - copy it into
clipboard and try it run from windows command prompt; if again
nothing you will have to delete registry entries by hand

[i tried "repair" in Greenstone uninstall but it shouted that it does
not have valid source - because the source was deleted after
installation by InstallShield itself :]
