Project reference variable TargetDir is missing trailing backslash for C++ projects #5537
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.
Visual Studio 2017 Professional
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.
The returned value for $(var.Project.TargetDir) should include a trailing backslash.
