Hi there,

I have written some merge modules to install some parts of my program.

These merge modules need to create and set some environment variables.
However, when I run the install, these are not created.

In my module, I have associated these variables with a component (AllOtherFiles).

Can anyone see any problem with this?

Does the component have a condition set on it? maybe that is not being evaluated to true?
Also, maybe your MM is not moving these into your main project when the MM is getting merged?

To try and debug this, either access the MSI with Orca or similar tool to check that your environmnet vairables are actually included in the Main project and are set correctly, and If that is ok, then try running the project with loggin on.

msiexec /I "msi name.msi" /L*V c:\log_test.txt
