View Full Version : msvcr71.dll, mfc71.dll MSM installs to root

This problem is at least 6 years old. Is there a fix that I've just missed in my (much) searching or is it still a known issue?

If still an issue, this is the most helpful post I've found:


But I have questions:

Is he talking about adding the custom action (Type 51) to the main project? or to the MSM?

I want to install these dlls to the SystemFolder, but I don't want to change the TARGETDIR to SystemFolder for the entire installation. Wouldn't what he suggests change TARGETDIR for the entire installation?

Please tailor your response to a newbie InstallShield/Windows Installer person.

Thanks in advance.
