    Related to your post about editing isproj file.

    My problem is as follows:
    I need to build msi project with merge modules. It is working fine if I set the full path to msm file in InstallShiled Options.
    But on build server, msm is in different location. Next, I have multiple solutions. So specify all possible full paths in InstallShiled Options on build server is not good solution for me. I hope that usage of InstallShieldMergeModulePath element will helps, but is seems that this element is ignored and so, msm file is not found (event if I tested it on local machine == remove full path from InstallShiled Options, set it in InstallShieldMergeModulePath).

    The solution on build server is builded without knowing that there are specific (isproj) projects. Build platform is set to x86.

    What I want to do is to use element InstallShieldMergeModulePath with value of relative path to folder where is msm file for this concrete project, something like ".\..\msmFilder"

    Do you know why is element InstallShieldMergeModulePath ignored?

    Thanks a lot!
