Read the following carefully:

Understand how Windows Installer works. What the Best Practices are etc...

What you are trying to do is not achievable.

If you want to share the dll, create a component for the dll alone and install into a folder. Let the service exes share the dll.

thanks for yor relpy..

i guess i didnt post my query correctly.. 😞
actually this is in reference to installshiled..In my installshiled project.. i have added two components(ie. two features). Both the components are exe and they are using a common dll say comm.dll, which is the third component.

Now i want to link this component to my above two components.
