Merge Module Custom Actions - 1721 Error!

Alright, I'm pulling my hair out with this one. I hope someone can help.  

I have a custom built Merge Module that installs a few files. I also have a Custom Action in the module that launches an exe. stored in the Property Table. The Property SRUN has the following value:

%SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705\InstallUtil.exe. I've also tried [SYSTEMROOT] in place of %SystemRoot%.

Then I have the target as [CommonFilesFolder]XML_Listener.exe.

I see that, after adding the Module to my main project, it passes the property, builds this custom in the main project's Custom Action Table and it is included in the InstallExecuteSequence table as well.

When my main install runs, I hit a snag on this with a 1721 error. Do I have the wrong property syntax for %SystemRoot%?

Hope someone can point me in the right direction  .

Properties defined or referenced in merge modules sometimes get the module guid appended to their name. Did you check this?
