I've got an InstallScript MSI project which is successfuly installing all apsects of an asp.net application - apart from one item.

The application includes some template .doc documents in /xyz/App_Data/Templates/abc.doc etc

The setup builds without any complaint, but when set up is run on the target machines, the .doc files are not installed - but everyting else is.

Why would that be, and what can I do to correct it?

That's strange; if you look in the Components view, is the component with the .doc files flagged with a red exclamation point? If so, the component isn't contained in any feature, and thus won't be installed.

Otherwise, perhaps create an MSI log file and search it for clues to why the component or its contents aren't being installed.
