Windows Installer Error 2705

P: n/a
Using Visual Studio, 2003:
When I create a deployment project and try to install it, I get Installer
Error 2705: Invalid Table, Could not be linked as tree.
How can I debug this? It seems that I should view the .msi file, but I don't
know how.
My Solution has several dlls in its hierarchy.
Can someone help me out?
Thanks,
Dennis

Yes, I did see this, but I do not have the Platform SDK.
Is it necessary that I have this?
Thanks,

If you've built an MSI file with VS 2003 and you get this error, it's either
a buig in VS 2003 (it should not generate invalid Directory table entries)
or you're including a merge module that's causing some problem.
