This is a known bug in the PDW (the PDW has lots of bugs).
Try looking at this:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;191096
and also think about using INNO (its free) and much better than PDW (once you learn how to use it).

I agree with brian...the P&D Wizard is quite crappy, and it is what is causing your problem....

Rather than Inno, I would suggest getting the Visual Studio Installer from microsoft. It's 10x better than P&D Wizards, and best of all it's free from Microsoft.

Anyhows..this whole discussion has basically allready taken place a few days ago...check out this link:
