Winsxs Folder problem

Hi there, I keep having problems installing files in the 'C:\windows\winSxS' foler when repackaging an application.
Wise for example places the folder that needs to be installed in the winSxS folder in the root of the Windows folder.

I know that these files require a certificate, but when i repackage an application, that certificate is already installed.

How do you guys solve this problem...

  • Hello,

    I have the same problem. Did you find a solution ?

    Moreover, do you know what to do with the files captured under the "%windir%\WinSxS\Manfifests\" and "%windir%\WinSxS\Policies\" directory ? Can we also just copy these files ?
