Un-handled Exception #3994
I received an exception as below when attempting to harvest the attached reg file with the command below the actual output shown below is with a pdb to give file and line number. I am running the latest version of WiX (The version of heat is 3.7.1224.0).
C:\Users\jmessenger\Downloads>"%WIX%bin\heat.exe" reg foo.reg -out reg.reg
heat.exe : error HEAT0001 : Unsupport registry value "New Value #2"=hex(b):00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00 at line 13.
Exception Type: System.ApplicationException
It would also be helpful if heat would simply harvest the rest of the registry values and then export them to the output. Perhaps with a warning message in the XML that QWORD values are not supported in addition to the warning printed to the console. WiX does the same thing in dark when exporting MSIs with binaries without using the -x option for dark.
