I am using Installshield X Express Version 10.0 Evaluation and I get error -5056: Internal build error every time I build a project. Why? My mergemod.dll version is 3.0.3790.332.

That is the version of MergeMod.dll from an un-released version of Windows Installer. You will want version 2.0.2600.0.

The version we ship with InstallShield X Express is 2.0.2600.0

This build error occurs when the build has difficulty initializing the Merge Module Catalog. The Merge Module Catalog contains a list of all merge modules that are available to an InstallShield setup. When a merge module is added to this catalog, it is then accessible via the Redistributables view.
The Merge Module Catalog is initialized during the build process before the merge modules are streamed into the built setup.
