When you define a PayloadId for an image that WixStdBA uses, you get an error message dialog at runtime:

path\to\.ba1\test.png is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.  Error status 0xc000012f.

Happens with 3.8.1128.0 and 3.9.805.0 (I didn't try out any other versions).

Steps to repro:

First create a bundle like this:

<Wix xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/wix/2006/wi" xmlns:bal="http://schemas.microsoft.com/wix/BalExtension">
  <Bundle Name="WixPayloadIdBug" Version="" Manufacturer="Test" UpgradeCode="f265b462-103e-4407-b5d9-79c95acad238">
    <BootstrapperApplicationRef Id="WixStandardBootstrapperApplication.RtfLicense">
      <bal:WixStandardBootstrapperApplication LicenseUrl="" ThemeFile="CustomRtfTheme.xml" />
      <Payload Id="MyID" SourceFile="test.png" />

      <ExePackage SourceFile="C:\Windows\notepad.exe" />

Then for CustomRtfTheme.xml, take RtfTheme.xml and add an image element for test.png:

<Image X="11" Y="11" Width="64" Height="64" ImageFile="test.png" Visible="yes"/>

Then create the test.png file, compile the bundle, and run it.

Simply removing Id="MyID" from the payload makes it work.
