I performed the following sequence of actions

  1. Installed MS VS2012
  2. Installed WiX 3.6.3303.1
  3. Created a new project from 'Templates/Visual C++/windows Installer XML/C++ Custom Action'
  4. Try to compile...

Generated project will fail because "#include <wcautil.h>" is not found in the path (included in stdafx.h)

In the project properties I can see the following include path defined '$(WIX)sdk\VS2010\inc'
and $(WIX) evaluates (correctly) to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\WiX Toolset v3.6'
However there is no '...\sdk\VS2010\inc'
There is a '...\SDK\VS2012\inc'

If you fix that manually a similar problem occurs with the link '...\sdk\VS2010\lib' does not exist but 'SDK\VS2012\lib\x86' and 'SDK\VS2012\lib\x64'

Not sure is there are any other properties with a similar problem
