Hi Ammar

Thanks for your prompt response.

Recall that your suggestion was to NOT use the redistributables section, and to specifically add the files I need. So, nothing will be automatically installed.

I think my issue is to understand specifically what files I need to manually include, and which ones not to include. So for my error, it sounds like you are saying to not include that one file.

[EDIT]
I recompiled and looked closer, and fine this line also after that warning:

Please ensure that the file is self-registering and verify that the self-registration process does not fail

I looked up on MSDN this error, and didn't find much help. Found 2 articles, one saying need to ask Installshield help, and the other talking over my head here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winformssetup/thread/8c55730a-2979-4fdf-86cf-437294358392/
