I am new to InstallShield and need a quick answer about Merge Modules. I have InstallShield Express 2.13 and trying to build an install for a VB project that uses ADO 2.5. I have downloaded the MDAC25.MSM file but don't know how to get InstallShield to find the merge module. I've been reading through the knowledge base but have not found any documentation on how to do this so I'm wondering if the express version supports this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm afraid Express 2.X cannot use any of the merge modules. The reason is because Express 3.X is built on the Microsoft Windows Installer technology while 2.X was based on our own engine. The merge module technology is part of the Windows Installer.

Is there a page on this site where .MSM files can be downloaded?

I found the answer to my own question in an earlier post...
