User Interface Won't Launch

I have an existing Installscript installation that I need to update. The developers have changed the directory structure and added a quite a few new files. I want to use the same scripts, but I want to re-link the files. I deleted all of the components out of the structure, and re-added the files using the component wizard, and now when I attempt to run the installation, the user interview section never shows up. Nothing has changed execpt for the files, I did not modify the script files. As I have customized the script quite a bit, I do not want to start from scratch. If I try an run it through the debugger, it gets to the point where the install script should run but never does.

Thanks in advance.

Additional Information

I get the following warnings, but when I used the direct editor to look at the file remove table, there are no entries.

Val0002: The RemoveFile table entry 'MSDE7Upgrade.01.CC1A8C58_27D1_4D38_BF1B_C0A5CBB90616' has an InstallMode of 1. In an upgrade scenario, if the component 'MSDE7Upgrade.CC1A8C58_27D1_4D38_BF1B_C0A5CBB90616' does not have to reinstall, the files attributed to this table entry will not be removed. You can change the InstallMode value to 3 so that the files will at least get removed on uninstall, or make sure that this RemoveFile table entry is associated with a component that will get reinstalled.

Found the cause, but not the solution

The Valadation errors (V0002) are causing the build to fail although it is not shown as failing. I have a file Microsoft.SqlServer.Diagnostics.strace.dll that is causing the MSDE 2000 SQL Server Core Files Merge Module to be included in the build process. This Merge Module seems to have a problem causing the validation errors listed the previous post.

I'm having the developer review the requirement for this file, and see if I can remove it.

Has anyone else seen this problem with this merge module?

Thanks,
Robert M.
