Do not register typefile

I have captured an installation of an app that we use at work. When install the captured MSi i get a "could not register type library file..."
on a AF20.dll under common files\ESRI folder.

suggestions online say to change the file so it doesn't register. I am unable to find that option with MSI Editor.

Any suggestions?

Thank you for your interest in PACE Suite and for your questions!

It is a well-known problem of Windows Installer. According to MSDN it is strongly advised against using the TypeLib table. Please, register type libraries using the Registry table.
Launch MSI Generator and go to Settings. Select your profile at MSI Creation Options and click Edit as shown on the screenshot:

Select Registry and uncheck the TypeLib checkbox:

Click the Save button and then re-build your package:
