Merge Module - Attempting to verify a successful install.

Jump to solution

I'm trying to have my project install a merge module (specifically Microsoft_VC140_MFC_x86.msm) which should be placing a mfc140.dll file in the computer's C:\Windows\System32 folder, among other .dll files. The merge module is added under a feature of my project in a merge module holder object.

Since my computer already has the redistributable installed, I renamed one of the .dll files and ran the installation to see if it created a new one, however, nothing was installed. I'm just wondering if the merge module knows that I already have the redistributable on my computer? Also are there any steps I'm missing here in the setup of such an installation?

If you are running your 32-bit application package on 64-bit machine then check under C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder
