Folks:
I'm finding that if I create a "type 51" custom action to set a
property - the results depend on whether or not the custom action is defined
in a merge module. If the custom action is defined in the merge module, the
property appears to not get set. But if I write the exact same custom action
in the main project, and call it from the same place I called the
merge-module custom action - it works fine and sets the property value.

BasicMSI installer, and IS 7.01.

Any ideas?

Thanx,
Lewis.

This might be one of those cases where the actual MM property name as seen
from the parent install is property.guid.
