Hi Ven,

I don't have an answer  - I'm a newbie too.  Would you care to explain why
you need an independent directory? Or how you intend using it?

Subject: [wix-users] Independent Directory element

Can't I define an independent Directory element inside a separate fragment
or component? If I do that, I get an error saying "The directory with the
Id 'TestDir' is not a valid root directory. There may only be a single
root directory per product or module and it's Id attribute value must be
TARGETDIR and it's Name attribute value must be SourceDir. " Sorry for
asking such a silly question, but I am new to WiX, so, please forgive me.
I am a newbie and a learner and could use all the help. Hence, please
