Hi Everyone ,
I am facing a strange problem with on the applications i am packaging. The application is a legacy exe application which i captured using Wise package 5.5. There were around 6-7 common files like comdlg32, comctl232, comct32 , oleaut 32 for which i included the respective merge modules. On launching the shorcut the application goes on never ending sefl heal , i check in the event-viewer and the Warning there points to the component of that merge module. I am unable to figure out why is it pointing to the mm component. Please help .

I think that it could be due to the registry entries associated with these com components is still left behind in the MSI.
Go through the Registry table and remove any related registry entry as these will be added from the merge modules instead.

Might want to also try, if the hint given by AngelID doesnt work, not using the merge modules and manually adding the files to the package. Not having used Wise I would assume it will ask you if you want to use the modules when you drag and drop the files into your package, just say no.

Also it would be worth fixing the merge modules of all errors anyway so that you remove these types of problems. Just remember to keep the same GUID as the Microsoft versionl.
