I have created a single feature with a single component basic msi that only installs one dll to a directory I get the following error any time I build it and the dll is a key file. If I don't mark it as a key file then it will build fine. I assume that the msi has to have at least one key file.

Does this still happen if you change the '.Net Scan at Build' property on the component to 'Properties Only'? If so, this is a known issue that was addressed in SP1 of InstallShield 12.
I did see that and SP2 fixes the issue but after calling installshield they don't have a sp2 update for adminstudio however they do have a hotfix that they can send.
