WinApp Installation Error

My application encounters an error when I try to run setup.exe.  This just started last Friday, been using the same Setup and Deploy project for the past year on this program.  Now when I try to Install, the Windows Installer comes up and says, "Preparing to install...", then goes to <Error Message>, then when I click OK to that, it goes to my program installation complete window and says, "The installer was interrupted before 'ProgramName' could be installed.  You need to restart the installer to try again."

Need help....I'm stuck...users can't install much needed update.

Recently, just migrated Access.mdb to SQL Server, included Custom Bootstrapper for SQL Native Client, but it's been working fine with those for awhile.  Most recently, I was messing with something my program needed to do first thing when it opened, so I was playing with the splashscreen code, changed the startup form...., but I found a better way to do it, so I put all the changes back....or so I think...maybe something's wrong with that?

Check the Event Log , Application Log etc.
If you have written some custom code to be executed during setup time , try debugging it.

DEBUG: Error 2835:  The control ErrorIcon was not found on dialog ErrorDialog

Check for the existence of control Error Icon , whether some code was modified related to it.

Though it wasn't the exact answer, it led me to the particular errors in the log that let me do more specific searches.  Thanks
