'm new to admin studio and i'm trying to use repackager and snapshot to repackage lecacy apps as msi's

my app contains directoies with the same name but in different paths within in.

i.e
c:\program files\abc\3d
and

c:\program files\xyz\3d

and

c:\program files\temp\3d

when i use repackager the directory structure is shown correct in the .inc file
however when i build the app to an msi and edit the msi the paths are not maintained only the last 3d directory (or any other directory with the same name) is maintained and all files from all 3d directories are copied to the last occrance of 3d. hence in the wrong place.

How do i over come this as i assume its something i am doing and not a feature!
When i run the msi on a clean machine the correct path do not install as the origional only whats shown in the built msi


Thanks

a confused new user
