RE: Exception Type: System.ArgumentException

Rob Mensching
Can someone file a bug on dark's wrong behavior, please?  It should never
crash.

I encountered this before in VS2003 generated setups. For some reason  
VS uses duplicate component guids in some cases.

It is probably a good idea to think of a way to let dark deal with  
that (with the flag for decompiling VS setups on ofcourse), but I  
don't know a good workaround.

What I did when I encountered it was slightly change one of the  
duplicated component guids. (Which requires the upgrade from the  
VS2003 setup to the wix one to be a major upgrade ofcourse)

I haven't found an open issue on this, if there is one, let me know.
