Problem with setup

I have an application that works, which is written in VB using Visual Studio
2003. Now, I'm trying to create a setup application for it. As the
application uses Crystal Reports, I followed the instructions provided by
Microsoft in
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/crystalmn/h
tml/crtskdeployingw indowsapplicati ons.asp

When I attempt to build the setup application, I'm getting the following
error in the task windows:
An error occurred when validating. HRESULT = '80040155'
The file listed is the setup's project vdproj file.

Here's the output from the output window:

------ Build started: Project: MyReport, Configuration: Release
..NET ------

Preparing resources...
Updating references...
Performing main compilation...
Building satellite assemblies...

------ Starting pre-build validation for project 'MyReport
Setup' ------
ERROR: An error occurred while validating. HRESULT = '80040155'
------ Pre-build validation for project 'MyReport Setup'
completed ------
------ Build started: Project: MyReport Setup, Configuration:
Release ------


---------------------- Done ----------------------

Build: 1 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 skipped
Anyone have any idea, suggestion, etc. as to what could be causing the
error, or how to resolve the problem?

TIA,

Are you using any COM objects?

Thanks guys.

Per the KB article David referenced, I checked the various registry settings
(they were all okay), and then unregistered and re-registered mergemod.dll.
I went into Visual Studio, closed all the windows (per the KB article), and
then built the setup project. It compiled successfully. I'm not sure if
re-registering mergemod.dll or closing the windows did the trick, but in
either case, I'm able to build the setup project.

Thanks for the assistance,

I am trying to use the Shell command to run the MSDE setup.
