    Angry WORK-AROUND: "Invalid Identifier Was Supplied" Message in Merge Module

    When working on a merge module project, once I created the original ISM project, I can no longer modify the project by adding files to any of the components. When I try to, I get this error:

    Name:  CropperCapture[1].png
Views: 348
Size:  24.3 KB

    No matter what the file is called, that error shows-up which is clearly a defect in the InstallShield software.

    To work-around this, make sure that in the General Information section, the Project File Format is set to XML. Then open the project file in an XML editor, search for the existing file names, and copy one of the existing rows to create a new row for your new file. You should be able to figure-out which elements to change by looking at the existing files as an example.

    Replace - with _ in GUID


    I had the same problem.
    My problem was, that I hat do Replace a GUID in the Project. So I opened it as XML and replaced the old GUID with the new generated.
    But I haven't seen, that the old one had _ not - between the characters.
    So I corrected it an everything is ok.
