Hi Guys,
I am including the vc++ 2019 x86 redistributable in my WIX Installer. I am using the merge module like this in my Installer:

        <Merge Id="VCRedist" SourceFile="$(var.distribution_dir)\Microsoft_VC142_CRT_x86.msm" DiskId="1" Language="0"/>

      <Feature Id="VCRedist" Title="Visual C++ 8.0 Runtime" AllowAdvertise="no" Display="hidden" Level="1">
        <MergeRef Id="VCRedist"/>

My project compiles well and also installs well. I wanted to know how do I make sure that the merge module has installed properly. I don't see any registry update under


Where do I check to make sure the files have been installed ?

Thank you
