Merge Module Scanning helps you to identify if you have captured components that ship in a published merge module. Merge modules are share components that may be delivered by any number of different setups. By leveraging the merge modules and not repackaging those same files, you can keep the GUIDs on those items in sync and accurately count how many applications may be using it in order to avoid removing it too soon during an uninstall. Scanning is often performed on-demand, and applicable modules can sometimes be easily inserted to the project (either immediately or during build-time).
This is one of many application packaging features covered here at AppDetails. When considering what features are important to you, we recommend you also contemplate the importance of a good GUI Editor, PowerShell Support, an MSI to App-V Converter, and other application packaging features.
