I am getting an "Instance name is not valid" doing a major install of my product which includes MSDE via merge modules. I have figured out that this has something to do with "instance clash" but I cannot figure a way around it. Everything worked fine on minor upgrades.

Any suggestions?

There are many problems with the MSDE merge modules. Microsoft recommends not to use them.
