WiX Toolset v3.10.1 Released

Today we release WiX Toolset v3.10.1. As the ".1" indicates this is a maintenance release to fix an issue that couldn't wait for the next big release. Namely, some Windows XP support was broken due to changes in the VC++ compiler. Given that we were releasing again, we decided to take another high impact fix.

  • Bug 4902 and Bug 4908 - workaround for a Visual Studio 2015 issue that caused certain WiX standard custom actions to fail when run on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.
  • Bug 4772 - fixed hyperlinks in WixStdBA on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.
  • Bug 4899 - fixed parsing of some attributes of the WixStandardBootstrapperApplication element.

As usual, Bob has a bit more detail about the release as well.

Finally, as with most maintenance releases, if you are on WiX v3.10 you do not need to upgrade to v3.10.1 unless you hit one of these issues.

Happy Halloween! We hope you enjoy our little treat.
