2705 - Invalid table: [2]; Could not be linked as tree

I have seen this problem where "[2]" has a value of "Directory" and the directory table existed. You can reproduce the problem with this line of code (where "PARENT" doesn't exist!):

<$DirectoryTree Key="Child" Dir="[PARENT]\ChildDirName">

Now you will get a "ICE03" validation error message when building the MSI (if you have installed "MSIVAL2"), but if you try to install the MSI you will almost immediately get the "2705" message.
