#68 MSM taks <search type=file> does not work

Tasks (69)

I'm trying to do a search for a file, however nothing
is put in the AppSearch table or the Signatures table.

Here is my search tag

<key type="file" path="C:\Program Files\Common
Files\ESRI" root="machine" >
<value name="Mo20.ocx" setproperty="MO20PATH" />

I have tried the example registry search and the do put
rows in the AppSearch table

    Looking at LoadApplicationSearch in
    InstallerCreationCommand.cs, it appears that the file type
    was never added.

    I've been looking at the LoadApplicationSearch command, and
    it appears that the registry and file switch are reversed.
    I swapped them and this did put more entries into the
    correct tables but the search is still not working properly
    (it did not populate the signature table).

    I'm attaching a patch with the fix for the swapped switch.

    the /search/key element will be depreciated. It will be
    replaced by the following elements:
