also mscoree.dll is required for the vbs.net framework.

otherwise

You do not need that file. This is a Norton Win Doctor "error"?

WinDoctor is pretty good at establishing certain file dependencies, but it can't tell you whether a certain file is actually required to run on your machine.

You can solve this two ways

Either delete your Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield folder, which can be missed, or tell WinDoctor to ignore this 'error'.
