View Full Version : Error: File already in Merge Module.

11-27-2003, 07:04 AM

I'm trying to add a file to my IS project but IS won't let me do. The error is that the file belongs to a merge module.

Thank you installshield it is very kind of you but I KNOW THAT!!!! I did the merge module and I removed the file from the merge module.

So is this some sort of Installshield policy "Once a file has been added in a merge module it cannot be added to any other project"?

Any help will be really appriciated!

I could not tell you exactly how I managed to get rid of that problem.
I actually applied the Installshield way of solving problems: Do things again and again and eventually it will work after a while.

So basically what I did is that I assumed the information were stored somewhere in the registry. So I looked for the component/file name in the registry and I deleted all the keys that seemed appropriate (like don't delete COM servers registration info...).

It worked... but I could not tell you which one had to be deleted.
