No fix, but I found a workaround for this problem.

Find an Application that uses a working version of InstallShield (for me 
Battlefield Vietnam does the job)

Start installation

Goto C:\Program Files\Shared Files\ (don't know if this is correct, on a german 
machine this would be C:\Programme\Gemeinsame Dateien) and copy the 
InstallShield  folder to a save place (in case another application overwrites 
your files)

Hit Cancel on the installation

Start the Installation of the app that gives the 80040706 error. It should not 
overwrite the files, but use the present files and installation works just fine.
Sometimes I get an error that IKernel.exe could not be copied. This can be 
solved by overwriting it with a fresh one out of your backup folder.
