Well, based on the bug description, I'd say it probably does. The 
SmartForms installer failed because the SFSERV.DLLcould not be found 
(needed by SFSETUP.EXE). In the INI file, SETUP.LST, the Params section 
contains a list of files to be uncompressed to the temporary directory 
~SFSETUP. Since GetProfileString returned only the number of characters 
in the first string, the installer only copied the installer executable 
SFSETUP.EXE but not the necessary supporting files (DLLs, etc). This 
sounds very similar to the problem reported in bug 724.
