Wix Bootstrapper as msi output type RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently i am bundling all the MSI packages in Bundle.wxs file. The output type is exe.  The bootstrapper also contains custom UI for language selection. 

    When the output type is modified to msi , the output file gives an error as "This installation package could not be opened.  Contact the application vendor if this is valid installer package".

    Please provide input how to generate msi as output with custom UI for Bundle.wxs with MSi packages.
