Hi Marcus,

I am not able to reproduce it. Can you please send me a sample solution that reproduces this issue?

Ok I will do .. I too cannot isolate it.


Have another problem with another project ... That has the file types register in the set-up project.


Error 2 The primary key 'Launch Link' is duplicated in table 'ProgId'. Please remove one of the entries or rename a part of the primary key to avoid the collision. C:\Users\Marcus\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\Knowledgemill.Client.LinkLauncher\src\LauncherSetup\obj\Release\Harvested Output\_Knowledgemill.Client.LinkLauncher.wxs 7 1 LauncherSetup_wix

feeling like your testing team here

Hi Marcus,

Please send me the .vdproj file. I will try to find the cause of the issue.

Hi Marcus,

I reproduced the issue with the file types. I guess that you have two or more entries with the same name in the File Types editor. For some reason the File Types editor of VS setup project doesn't track such a situation. Could you please check names of file types in .vdproj?
