I have distribute set to 'Distribute with each build'. This copies the setup files to my CD location, which I will burn the CD from, for the client. There are extra files and folders created with an MSI build that are not created with Installscript build. These files are in the " Data" folder. (yes, that is a space before the word data.)

But there are files I don't want to distribute to my client, like Log files:

4-18-2006 02-28-42 PM.txt
4-18-2006 02-47-34 PM.txt
4-18-2006 03-18-20 PM.txt

But if I delete these log files, the application will not install. I get an error, see attached screen print.

Why are the log files need for the installation? They are not needed for an Installscript install.

Is there any way I can get rid of the data folder and it still install?

What are all those files in the data folder?

In addition, I found that if I delete everything under the interm folder, I get the attached error messsage. But this link says I can delete the interm folder: http://community.macrovision.com/archive/index.php?t-114535.html
