I have a main install which will be calling multiple assemblies. How do I associate the assemblies in this wrapper install with selectable features in the wrapper install? Thanks!

In the Installation Design view, can you right-click a feature and select Insert Assembly Reference...?

Thanks I had figured this out. Now however I have another problem. I want the assembly to be installed into the directory of the main install. I have set the install location for the assembly to $(install) however it still installs into the default folder if I change it. How do I communicate this type of information to the assembly if it is not automatic?

For the assembly's Location property, can you use the parent install's install location: $P(absoluteInstallLocation)?

I tried this and no luck :( There has to be a standard way to install an assembly into the same folder as the parent install which launched it.

Just to verify: where did you change this destination value?
