My product was installed with few Dll's and other text / chm files. During patching i would like to remove the few DLL files and few .chm files. My patch is .msp file.

I have populated the removefile table for all above files.

When i create patch removefile works perfectly for CHM files, but does not work for DLL files.

Any clue how to fix this >

Thanks in advance.

I assume the DLL is the key file of its component (it should be). This would mean you'd have to remove the component, which isn't possible in a small or minor update.
You could instead set the component condition to 0 and its "re-evaluate condition" setting to yes.
