Installation problem

#1
Hi Arno,

I had one user having trouble installing the autogen config merger. According to the log, he is getting the following message:

2:32:40 PM | AutogenConfigurationMerger version 1.1.6531.37127 rev cab4a053 date 19-Nov-17 6:34:49 AM

2:32:40 PM | Error! Stopping...

at ASToFra.AutogenConfigurationMerger.AutogenConfigurationMerger.InstallExe()
at ASToFra.AutogenConfigurationMerger.AutogenConfigurationMerger..ctor(String[] args)

Do you know what the problem might be?

I checked the code and this should only happen when the ACM registry key is there, but it contains no installation path. Not sure how that can happen, since ACM will put a correct value there normally. Maybe easiest to remove the registry key and install ACM again. I'll make the code more robust for this as well.

I've added an extra check for this condition now, it will be in the next release of ACM.
