[wix-users] Weird problem installing the same file into two different destinations

I'm running into this weird, machine dependent, problem:

Trying to install nssm.exe into two different locations (need it to install services - logstash and filebeat.) On my development machine it works fine but when I tried the installer on a vm only one made it. Obviously, the other service did not install... :(
The code:
    <Component Id="NssmLogstashComponent" Directory="LOGSTASHFOLDER" Guid="..." >
      <File Id="NssmLogstashExe" Name="nssm.exe" KeyPath="yes" Source="nssm.exe" />
    <Component Id="NssmFilebeatComponent" Directory="FILEBEATFOLDER" Guid="...">
      <File Id="NssmFilebeatExe" Name="nssm.exe" KeyPath="yes" Source="nssm.exe" />

Any tips on how to make sure it works everywhere?
