I have a large msi installation package using IS 7.04 as the authoring tool.
The installation project already uses many merge modules without any serious
problems. I am trying to include another merge module that I need into the
project. When I do, the install package builds just fine, but when I run it
I get an error during initialization:
"Internel Error 2705. Directory".
The full error message from MSI logging is:
DEBUG: Error 2705: Invalid table: Directory; Could not be linked as tree.
How do I debug what the merge module did to my Directory table? What does
this error message mean?
Any thoughts or ideas are greatly appreciated!!
One suggestion is to run validation on your package (available in the
Windows Installer SDK using Orca or MsiVal2). The other suggestion would be
to go through your directory table to make sure that it does form a tree.
Hope this helps,
