At:, add_data(...) is
documented to take two parameters, but invoking it with two draws a
complaint that three are needed.  Examination of leads me
to believe the missing (middle) parameter is "table", but I can barely
distinguish a database from a hole in the ground.

Thanks for pointing that out. The table argument must be one of the
predefined tables in the MSI schema, e.g. Feature, File, Component,
Dialog, Control, InstallExecuteSequence, etc. The values are the values
added to that table
