Installing just 15 of 20 files
I have this strange requirement, wherein i need to install just 15 of 20 files present in a single component. Now to do this there is something called FILEADDLOCAL property which takes the names of files to be installed. But it lacks and has a drawback. During install the file to be installed is checked with the component which is further checked with feature in the feature component table and installs the entire feature. I m a bit skeptical if movefile table can be made use of in this scenario, since it would be like moving the file and not installing. Hope i m on track. Can someone suggest me some solution to this issue?

What "vendor logic" would that be? The only logic I can think of would be in Custom Actions and it's simple enough to test what your changes do to those.
Just create a new feature and drop the components containing the required files into that. Next!
