Hi, I was searching on the forums and I found severals post about this error, but I can't find the solution.
I have the same problem, I can compile my package.msi, but when I want to install it on some PC, it shows a msg box with the error.
I have used ICE validation and I have found highlighted in red all files that are inside of a merge module.
Obviously, if I have a merge module in my package, the files included in this merge module doesn't appear like a component.... I think!
So, where I have to looking for??

I still have the problem, but I have new information that could help... to you help me!
The problem is about a merge module called BDE_ENT (Borland Database Engine). I did the package without use this merge module, then I installed it and it works fine, later I put the merge module, it replaced all files that are included in the merge module. I tried to install the package again and the msg error (2705) was there...
Why this merge do that??? I have to use this merge, but how can I do to fix that problem?

The directory that you get the 2705 error for has no valid Directory_Parent directory.
Perform an ICE validation and you should be pointed to the invalid entry you must correct.

Perform an ICE validation and you should be pointed to the invalid entry you must correct.That isn't exactly straight-forward to do if the table is in a merge module! :)

If you have Wise, you can convert the MSI to a WSI, during which process the MM will be extracted. You might be able to correct the error then.

My point was the validate the MSI (with the merged MSM) and not the MSM itself.
