When you build a Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 setup project a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 setup might start. To solve this problem on a x64 system:

regsvr32.exe /u "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\MSI Tools\mergemod.dll"
regsvr32.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\MSI Tools\mergemod.dll"

on a x86 system

regsvr32.exe /u "C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\MSI Tools\mergemod.dll"
regsvr32.exe "C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\MSI Tools\mergemod.dll"

  1. Thanks Roel!

    Spended hours of waiting for the SQL setup to repair or whatever it was doing at that point.

    Cheers!
