  • Which version of WiX are you building with?

wix4 HEAD

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


  • Which version of the WiX Toolset Visual Studio Extension are you building with (if any)?


  • Which version of .NET are you building with?


  • If the problem occurs when installing your packages built with WiX, what is the version of Windows the package is running on?


  • Describe the problem and the steps to reproduce it.

Some projects use the Windows 8.1 SDK and some use a version of the Windows 10 SDK. If you don't have the 8.1 SDK installed, you can't build (e.g., VisualStudio.wixext).

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

WiX should rely on one SDK. Maybe 8.1 is the right version, if used for everything?
