I am using WIX to create MSI package. We use C# and .Net3.5 version. I am getting the following error when I register the com object.
Hresult 2147024770.

Btw, I am on Vista.


Can someone please explain what is going on?
Thanks much.

       <File Id='DDM_Support.dll' Name='foo' Source='..\..\..\..\Foo.dll' SelfRegCost="1"/>
</component>
</directory>

Erro translation: The specified module could not be found

Can be related to two things:
- The path to the dll is incorrect
- Missing depending dll like MSCOMM32.OCX

Ps. You can check this by registring the dll by hand with: regsvr32 C:\path\to\foo.dll
