Hi everybody,
I have to package an application called Target, this application have a Merge Module of Borland Data Engine (BDE_ENT.msm). When I want to install this package on a clean machine, I see the message "Error 2705. Directory".
I know that there are a lot of post with this problem, but in this case there are a particularity:
If I compile this package with Wise for Windows Installer 4.21 or Wise Package Studio 6, it works well, but when I try to compile with WPS 7 I find that error.
Has anybody some idea about this problem?
I have to compile with WPS 7 [&o]

Thank you!

I did the validation, and I found all files included in the merge module are in "red", like if they were missed... but there are in the merge module... In the Directory table, I have cheked and everything is ok...

Install with a verbose log. The log will tell you exactly which directory entry is at fault.

validating your msi with orca will point you to the directory table

is this a vendors msi or did you capture the application and included the .msm

the directory parent column in the directory table is the culprit

make sure this column points to the right location
