I am trying to create a test install (using Install Shield for Windows 2.03) that places the contents of a msm (Merge Module) into my application directory. This is a simplification of my real problem...
I have read everything I can find and am still stumped. I tried editing the msm so that the desination directory in the msm is "."; I have then tried using the merge module wizard to add the module to my project (which just contains one executable) and set the destination directory to [INSTALLDIR]. The file does not install. I also tried creating the directory table entry in the root installation (page 739 in the offical installshield for windwos installer developers guide).
Still no file.
Am I just missing something basic here? I am just trying to make an install where the contents of a distributed Merge Module (Mainly from Microsoft) gets installed into my application directory. This is so I can handle DLLHELL by having my own private copies of some runtime libraries.
Anybody got a sample that does this? If so please email it to me.....
