I think I've found a BUG! Different files and folders are distributed depending on what "Shallow Folder Structure" is set to, under Releases.

When "Shallow Folder Structure" is set to YES, then in the distribution folder, an interm and data folder is created, and log files are copied to the distribution folder. But if I delete these log files and create a CD, the installation fails. See attached message screen print.

When "Shallow Folder Structure" is set to NO, then these extra files are not created in the distribution folder, nor are log files created there.

The problem it causes for me, is I do not want to distribute log files to my client, but sometimes I need a shallow folder structure when my directories are deep, when I'm doing an MSI project.

Why would log files get copied to the distribution folder when Shallow Folder Structure is set to YES, but not when it's set to No? That makes no sense.
