InstallShield is installing files that are not part of the install
I am trying to create an install that consists of 2 files. For some reason InstallShield is adding dll's to the installation. There are a number of them but just a few are systemtransaction.dll, bcrypt.dll, and stdole.dll. None of these dll's are required to run my program. How do I get them not to be installed?
You probably have dependency scanning enabled. Go through all your components and change it from Properties and Dependencies to Properties only. Also go into Tools Options and disable it in there for future components.
If that's not enough, you might have added a merge module without knowing fully what is in it.
