Hello MK,

It is scheduled for the end or August. Does deleting the "Program Files Folder" entry help?

I would need to reproduce this. Could you please list the steps that end with this problem?

Hi

No deleting the folder does not help. My question was answered thuesday by Dmitry "We will fix the bug in the next build of WiX Designer".

Hi Mads,

After deleting the "Program Files Folder" please do the following:
1. Remove the Directory="INSTALLFOLDER" attribute of the Component with Id = "ProductComponent".
2. Remove the ConfigurableDirectory="INSTALLFOLDER" attribute of the Feature with Id = "ProductFeature".
3. Add <ComponentRef Id="ProductComponent" /> child element to the Feature with Id = "ProductFeature".

Your setup project should compile without errors after these modifications.

I suppose you have a per-machine Office add-in project and the Add-in Express wizard created a default per-machine installation project for you (the target folder is Program Files\[ProductName], registry keys in HKLM, etc.). Then you are trying to modify the setup project so that it is installed for the current user only. If it is so, I would suggest that you modify your COM add-in project first (set the RegisterForAllUsers property to False and rebuild the project) and then create and improve a setup project.

I have the same issues. ADX com addin - using Wix. If I try to add custom interfaces, I get the same errors.

I am actually happy with the default interfaces ADX created. I would just like to change the Bitmaps and User Agreement.

Can you recommend the simplest way to do that please?

thanks,
kt
