Hi,

I'm quite new on ISDev7.01. I made a mergemodule and I'm trying to add this
on its parent poject which is a standard type project. I want the
mergemodule to override it's parent's/ fearture's destination so palce a dot
(.) on the destination feild of my mergemodule. But when I run it an Error
1606 occured while the setup was still prepareing to install. It says that
it could not access network location.

When I changed the destination of my mergemodule. The error apepared again.
But now it says " Could not access network location INSTALLDIR". Is there
something wrong??? What should I do to make this work??? Do you have any
other idea on how can I override the parents project INSTALLDIR on the
mergemodule???

Please guys I need your help. I would very grateful for any help you could
give me. Thanks in advance.

I had an Error 1606 doing a totally different thing than you and reported
the same bizarre error. But my network location was "map 0" instead of
INSTALLDIR, as yours.

Anyway, I think it may be reporting the error wrong. If you go to the MSI
help error codes, you'll see that Error 1606 is some error about feature
id...??? I still don't know the answer....but maybe it will give you aclue.

I don't know if this will help but I was also getting an Error 1606 after
having done a number of things to my setup. My error had "...network
location 0". After trying a number of things, I ran the Validate command and
saw a warning about TARGETDIR. I found that TARGETDIR had been set in the
Property Manger to 0. I removed the entry and the error is now gone.
