winsxs and side by side issues in msi
we are working on sage 100 for one of our client.
it is a suite of applications and we have to install only 3 sub products in it. for two sub products we have found the solution , for one product we are not successful in creating response files(weird behavior it install only on the machine where we have created it)
we tried capturing the application and ended up in error related to winsxs folder. application is writing application related files in this folder. i am sure it is not any vc++ files.
we tried to find merge modules for this files to overcome issue related to winsxs but in vain.
if we retain winsxs file as such in the msi, when we install the package it is getting installed in c:\windows instead of c:\windows\winsxs folder. when laucnhing the application it fails with side by side error and when we checked in event vwr it points to applcation related file in winsxs.
any sugesstion on how to overcome this issue.
