New info:

My original toolkit was SETUP for x86, not x64. I created a new SETUP for x64. After uninstalling the old one, rebooting, and installing the new one, the error from Windows Explorer is gone.

Does this make sense? Will we need to distribute both SETUP's?

Hi Ira,

The default setup project creates an installer that works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of IE. If you add some custom things to the the setup project, you may need to have two separate installers. Is this the case?
