Dynamic File Linking Duplicate are they OK?


Do not expect to author more than one component that installs a resource under the same name and target location. Microsoft indicates:

No file, registry entry, shortcut, or other resources should ever be shipped as a member of more than one component. This applies across products, product versions, and companies.

Reference: Windows Installer Components
