What are you trying to archieve? Express Professional (Version
1.0/1.1/1.1a) is able to merge registration files, Express ce which is
shipped with Delphi is not. That is why you should add the license keys in
question manually.

Hi,

Will it be possible to export a component to a MSM?

I made a merge model to install a dll in <Windowsfolder>\Lhsp\System.
When I use the merge model in an MSI product, the dll is installed in
<Windowsfolder>\Lhsp.

What can I do wrong?

It is not possible to export a component to an MSM.

Please create a small sample MSM which recreates this error and post it to
this site. I will take a look at and see if this is a build problem or a
merge problem.

This is a bug in merge module authoring. You will not be able to workaround
it though. I will get this into development so they can get it fixed ASAP.

I did manually fix the MSM so you should be able to import and use this one
now.
