Web setup fails to install due to "The description for Event ID ( 10000 )" error

I recently built a consumer app with a new version number (5th one) and it's been checking previous & newer version before installing.  But now the msi installer instantly fails to install on launch showing simply "<Error Message>" text on the screen. Application event log says the install failed due to "The description for Event ID ( 10000 ) ..." error.  The log shows the product name but all other parameters appear to be NULL.  I tried rebuilding w/o versioning.  Tried rebooting and rebuilding.  Same problem. I don't know what's going on.    

But my guess is that one of the screens got messed up.  After looking at my project's interface which includes a 4 radio button dialog screen; I notice that if I click on 'add dialog' screen then it no longer shows the 4 radio button screen as an option (So now only up to 3), is this an VS update issue related to this?   I wonder if somehow the code for 4 radio button screen got blown away and that the description is NULL for its parameters and its screen option no longer exists. 

Has anyone seen this type of install error? Any thoughts?

Okay shortly after I sent the message I found I did something pretty stupid.  What I found should help anybody else prevent/doing the same stupid thing.   I was experimenting a little with launch conditions within the setup and eventually I forgot to delete a new blank launch condition I created earlier. It had no file indicated and <Error Message> was the default message if the file indicated does not exist.  Well - not deleting this blank launch condition aborts your setup by default.Cool <img src=" src="/emoticons/emotion-11.gif">

What happened to the "Web Deploy" and "Web Deploy Options" menu items under C++ Builder 2007.
I've converted a C++ Builder v6 ActiveX project over to C++ Builder 2007 and the "Web Deploy" and "Web Deploy Options" menu items are no longer available under the "Project" main menu.
