The selection manager is responsible for determining component and feature states. It is initialized during the costing actions ( CostInitialize action, FileCost action, and CostFinalize action.) A standard action or custom action made a call to a function requiring the selection manager before the initialization of the selection manager. This action should be sequenced after the costing actions.
Also, for those developing their own MSI packages, it has been reported that configuring files not to Auto Register themselves can correct this problem. The Auto Register setting attempts to register files automatically during installation, which is not always preferrable.
