Discussions and support

This is a support request. I am unable to find Wix Toolset 3.6 anywhere on the internet. I found the archives on but it doesn't have an .exe or an installer for Wix 3.6. I need this specific version for building an .msi for a legacy component.

  • Which version of WiX are you building with?

Wix Toolset 3.6

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

VS Ultimate 2013

  • Which version of .NET are you building with?

.Net 4.5

You can get the installer from the Codeplex archive. We haven't put them back up because older versions have security vulnerabilities.

FYI the archive is 1.2GB. Inside you'll find a releaseList.json that states that the file releases/7/ea1f0431-7aa8-437e-9236-25e8faec4dbb is the wix36.exe file. Just extract and rename and you'll see what you need.
