When referencing a C++ project in a Setup project and using the TargetDir project reference variable, $(var.Project.TargetDir), the returned path no longer includes the trailing backslash as it used to be with WiX 3.10.3 and VS2015.

  • Which version of WiX are you building with?

  • Which version of Visual Studio are you building with (if any)?

Visual Studio 2017 Professional

  • Describe the problem and the steps to reproduce it.

I've upgraded from WiX 3.10.3 and VS2015 to WiX 3.11 RC and VS2017. The referenced C++ projects platform toolset has been upgraded from v140 to v141. The $(var.Project.TargetDir) no longer has a traling backslash for a referenced C++ project.

  • Describe the behavior you expected and how it differed from the actual behavior.

The returned value for $(var.Project.TargetDir) should include a trailing backslash.
