2920 Source directory not specified for file [2].

Generate a log file with the command

msiexec /l*v "C:\Log.log" /i <MSINAME>

when the error pops up, open the log file in C:\ log.log and look at the last sentence (Do not close the error when you are doing this

Check which file the installation is refferning to.

Hi bheers,

I tried your suggesion and below are the last few lines in the log created by MSI. I'm not sure what should be done to fix this issue. I 'm not using any vjslib.dll in my project and i have also removed it from the bin. Can you please guide me to fix this issue.

'vjscor70.dll.61E2ACF4_54FF_4C4B_9815_987EFD854F86' belongs to Visual J# .NET Redistributable merge module.
see if the merge module exists in the MergModule Folder, or try removing the merge module and re - add it
