Description:
The installation for the connector does not write the correct registry keys, in particular, the location keys.

My connector has been installed to C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Net Connector 5.0.3\Bin\2.0\

eg: on my system, HKLM->software->microsoft->visual studio->8.0->AssemblyFolders->MySQL Connector NET 5.0.3 has a default value of D:\bin\2.0\
Looking at the main.wix file, it seems that [TARGETDIR] is not registering properly for some reason.

How to repeat:
Uninstall and reinstall.

Suggested fix:
unknown.  Is this a possible issue with wix?

Hi Sean and thanks for your problem report. Indeed, on my XP Pro machine it is "installed", by registry, into non-existent folder (C:\bin\.NET 2.0\)...
