Michael,

I also find that the mechanism that Windows Installer provides for listboxes
won't handle strings that are longer than sixty-four characters.  Currently,
the maximum template name length appears to be fourty-eight characters.  But
DBT is less restrictive than the sixty-four character limit in Windows
Installer listboxes.  So we will at least have to bear in mind that we'd be
introducing a new limitation.

My vote would be to have an override in the custom install for any automated
action.
