If this issue is a bug:

  • Which version of WiX are you building with?

  • Which version of Visual Studio are you building with (if any)? VS 2017 15.8.9

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

  • Describe the problem and the steps to reproduce it.

When a wixproj has a project reference to a vbproj file, removing the reference to the vbproj deletes the vbproj file from disk (and pends a delete in TFS version control).

Steps to reproduce:

  1. open a wixproj that contains a project reference to a vbproj file.
  2. Right-click and Remove on the reference.
  3. note that the vbproj file is deleted (and a delete is pended in TFS if under source control).
