Change request: Candle.exe currently emits an error if the same variable is specified more than one in -d switches, regardless of value. The preprocessor handles this case with warnings, regardless of value. Instead, both should be warnings if the values are the same.

  • Describe the scenario and benefits that the feature supports.

To be kind to the user who accidentally ended up with multiple DefineConstants in their .wixprojs.

  • Describe how you're accomplishing the feature today (if possible).

Being extremely precise about shared .wixproj authoring to avoid duplicates.

  • Describe what you'd like the new feature to do.

(See above.)
