  • Launch wix38.exe.
  • Click the License button.
    (Apparently whatever file is trying to launch does not have a viewer associated with it)
  • See Crash :

System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception was unhandled

I was able to repro this by uninstalling IE and installing Chrome. Chrome doesn't register for file extension handlers, just protocol handlers. Easiest fix is just switch to a plain-text license file. wixtoolset/wix3#105
