A colleague has built an MSM which has the following dependency:

Name: Microsoft .NET Framework (Reference Only)
Version: 1.0
Language: English (United States)
Module ID: mondo.E4183BB4_18A8_11D5_A549_0090278A1BB8

When building I get:

Adding Microsoft® .NET Framework redistributables to setup...
ISDEV : error -1007: Cannot copy source 'D:\Builds\Your Project Name-1\Product Configuration 1\Interm\MergeModules\mondo.E4183BB4_18A8_11D5_A549_0090278A1BB8\Accessibility_dll_1_____X86.3643236F_FC70_11D3_A536_0090278A1BB8' to target 'D:\Builds\Your Project Name-1\Product Configuration 1\Release 1\DiskImages\DISK1\Win\Microsoft.NET\Framework\URTInstallPath\GAC\Accessibility.dll'

It makes no difference when I add in the .NET framework 1.0 or 1.1 to the release.
I'm using Developer 8 SP2.
It's an InstallScript MSI project.
OS: Windows Server 2000 SP3.

Any thoughts as to why I'm getting this error?
Thanks for your time,

Stefan Krueger

I believe this merge module is not intended for your distribution release. Check the Visual Studio documentation.

Thanks for that Stefan.

We have now solved the problem.

The specific solution was to simply rebuild the MSM without .NET Framework 1.0 as a dependency - we are only using 1.1 anyway (but I don't know why that didn't appear as a dependency).

Many thanks in advance!
