Visual Installer Invalid Source Error

Hi,

I have just purchased and installed Crystal Reports XI (Release 1), downloaded SP4 and the latest Merge Modules.

I have registered the software and run Orca on CrystalReports11_RDC_License.msm to include the product key (with no dashes).

My VB6 project includes the following:

Component - Crystal ActiveX Report Viewer Library 11.0

References - Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer Design and Runtime Library 11.0

- Crystal ActiveX Report Viewer Library 11.0

When I build an msi file (Visual Installer 1.1), I have included 3 merge modules:

CrystalReports11_RDC_License.msm

CrystalReports11_RDC_Designtime.msm

CrystalReports11_RDC_Reportengine.msm

It gives the error "Property 'SourceFile' is invalid" for all dlls in the ReportEngine merge module. The SourceFile property shows addresses like "\Program Files\CommonFile\Business Objects\3.0\bin\ufmanager.dll"

However, dlls in the Designtime.msm are OK, and the SourceFile property shows addresses like " ..\..\..\..\Program Files\CommonFile\Business Objects\3.0\bin\craxdrt.dll"

Note that if I exclude the ReportEngine merge module, I get exactly the same error messages !

Please help !

Paul
