I'm writing a wix-based installer to replace our current (home-grown) installation solution.

Subject: [WiX-users] does wix have a dependency on mfc80loc.dll?
I've got the functionality I want, but I seem to have picked up a requirement for mfc80loc.dll. That is, if I install using the old install scripts, our software runs fine. If I install using the WiX authored installer, MFC apps fail to run, and the event log shows errors that start with a missing mfc80loc.dll.
My googling of this dll leads me to believe it shouldn't be required for our situation - ie: we only expect to install to English language Windows boxen. (If this sounds draconian, please consider that at present we're installing to a very limited number of clients, and we know their situation very precisely).
Is there a known issue about this? Is it possible that WiX is modifying my system's locale information? If this is the case, it may be driven by my own naive use of WiX. I specify a language attribute in the "Product". Is there any other locale information I need to specify to install to an US/English box?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
