Summary: DAO350 merge module does not register

Initial Comment:
When using the DAO350.msm from InstallSheild with a WIX
generated msi ... the dao350.dll is not registered when
the msi install completes successfully.  I tested this
on a fresh XP install.

After some more digging I determined that none of the
registration entries were being put in the registry.

So I used Dark.exe to take the DAO350.msm and make a
dao350.wxs file out of it to see what it thought was in
there.  It showed the normal stuff and did contain the
registry entries.

So then on a whim I built DAO350.msm using WIX and the
dao350.wxs that Dark generated and used that in the
MSI.  After installation it appeared to register as
expected.

Hmmmmm .... there is more to this than meets the eye so
I wrote a bug up on it.

I don't get it and since I use so many InstallShield
merge modules I want to make sure something isn't wrong
or missing.

InstallShield DAO350.msm can be found here
