Visual Studio Setup & Deployment Project: “Unrecoverable Build Error”

After installing Visual Studio 2008, I was trying to build the setup project & I saw the error “Unrecoverable Build Error”, no information in other columns as file name, line number etc. I was wondering about the reason behind it & found following solution:
For setup & Deployment project, the error occures if mergemod.dll is not registered properly. To register the same run following command:
regsvr32 “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSI Tools\mergemod.dll”

Now, rebuild the project, it will work.
