  • Which version of WiX are you building with?

package id="WixToolset.MSBuild" version="4.0.0-build-0027"

  • 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.

When you set the decompiler context's DecompileType = OutputType.Product, actions aren't scheduled. (i.e., no InstallExecuteSequence and friend elements are emitted.)

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

Actions should be scheduled, as they are when decompiling to module source.

DecompileType = OutputType.Product for a merge module doesn't schedule actions because the decompiler doesn't bother looking for the Module* tables. However, if you set TreatProductAsModule to true, it does. Not sure if this is a real bug. Please do that triage thing, triage team!
