With builtin MSI there comes a problem at the end of a setup in 
Installshield X with handling its "Merge Modules":
--------------- schnipp ---------------
Installshield Wizard

Merge Module Holder Object
Number:       -2147220254
Description:  MSI engine not found
File:         C:\BldRoot\source\ObjectsPro\Merge Module Object\Script
Line:         401
Script Error: -1
--------------- schnapp ---------------

The symbolic links in WINSYSDIR seems to make some problems, here in 
InstMsiA.exe and also with the regsvr32.exe in Internet Explorer Setup. 
I think a way avoiding them could be making physical copies of the files 
  when an application tries to move the symbolic links. But maybe that's 
no simple change.
