Using the merge modules is no longer recommended. Use a Prerequisite to install MSDE. Then you can use the SQL Server view to add a database.

Could you explain how you would specify as a prerequisite? I am having issues with what I think are related to MSDE merge module. What I am experiencing is a "wizard was interrupted" message. I use the merge module from IS for MSDE and attach the db with a custom action. The project has two features, one that installs MSDE and connects the database and the other that installs the desktop application. Everything works fine when I install both features on the same computer even if they are installed at different times. The error message occurs at the finish screen when I install only the client feature on a computer that will later connect to the database.

I am hoping to start distribution of the application soon and would like any suggestions you have on this subject.

Thank you,
