Express cannot stream net.exe at the location specified into Binary table. Do you have custom action referencing to the named executable?

Since Express does not expose all tables in a MSI installation, you should use Orca, a free tool in MS Windows Installer SDK, to examine the project file, and remove any reference to net.exe if found in the project file.

I found it using Orca. There was an old reference from a previous custom actions. Removed it from the .msi file it compiled.
