[wix-users] Using Merge Module with my existing project.

Your MSMs are really old (or built with old tools) and use the old schema. The issue will resolve if you add at least one Component to your MSI. Or if you don't plan to/want to add a Component, try using <EnsureTable Id="FeatureComponents" />

Subject: [wix-users] Using Merge Module with my existing project.


I am trying to add Merge Modules to my existing MSI.
While building I am getting the following error, error LGHT0204: ICE32: Possible Mis-Aligned Foreign Keys
  Feature.1 = s38
  FeatureComponents.Feature_ = s32

The below is my Product.wxs. Can someone please help me with what I am missing?
Or there is some problem with with the Merge Module itself?

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <Wix xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/wix/2006/wi">
      <Product Id="*" Name="SharedComponents" Language="1033"

        <MajorUpgrade DowngradeErrorMessage="A newer version of [ProductName] is already installed." />

        <Feature Id="SharedComponents" Title="Shared Components" Level="1">
