View Full Version : Help with Merge module

05-27-2004, 06:08 PM
I created a mergemodule (.msm) using Installshield for a package that is to be common for multiple projects.

I created another Installscript (.msi) project that needs to include this .msm package.

The .msm package is listed when I go to the "Re-distributables" section in my .msi project. I selected my .msm by checking the checkbox.

When it is being built, it displays the message "Merging .... merge module: path...

But when I install, even when I select that component, it does not get installed.

What am I missing?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I found that the files in the MergeModule are getting installed, but in a totally unexpected place.

I want the files in the MergeModule to be installed in the same location as the files of the project to which this Merge Module is being included. How can I get it installed in the folder which the user selects for the project in which it is being included?

Right now in the MergeModule, Destination is INSTALLDIR.

MergeModule is a basic MSI and the project that uses this merge module is an Installscript project.

Hoping someone knows how to fix this.
