I am trying to get a merge module from a third party to install in my installation, but there is no sign of it anywhere after the installation. The IS logfile notes that it is merging the module, and there is no error when I build the installation. I have tried setting the destination of the merge module to it's default, and also to other directories, but in all cases, there is no sign of the third-party installation. I have Orca, but I don't know enough about it or the msm structure to know what to look for in the merge module. Can anybody help?

TIA,
Al

I suppose you know the name of file(s) in the merge module. You can generate and analyze installation log to determine why the file(s) are not installed.

As for merge module tables, you can find out more information at Merge Module Database Tables (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/msi/setup/merge_module_database_tables.asp).
