VSInstaller: The property 'Sourcefile' is invalid?

VSInstaller: The property 'Sourcefile' is invalid?

VSInstaller: The property 'Sourcefile' is invalid?


I'm using Visual Studio Installer to create an .msi file.  I create new Visual Basic Installer project, and select the project I want to use.  The dependancy files from 2 other projects are pulled in and it looks ok.  

However, when I try to build it I get an error:
"The property 'Sourcefile' of file 'MyProject.Exe' is invalid."

Can anyone suggest what's going on please?  
Thank you

RE: VSInstaller: The property 'Sourcefile' is invalid?

Same with me. I couldn't get any help on the net. Anybody how to solve it? Somehow the source file for these files will be just the name of the path, whereas for rest of the files it is the relative path. Can we change this information anywhere?
