Hi,
We just buy the VDProj to WiX Converter, Standard. I launch the conversion Setup project with success, but when I compile, I got the following errors:

SetupBBWin64\Product.wxs(497,0): error LGHT0094: Unresolved reference to symbol 'CustomAction:_5E9D0ADA_EAA8_463E_A404_1B7A592E95DB.Install.SetProperty' in section 'Product:*'.

Is the conversion tool supposed to create the WiX Custom Action Install and Uninstall stub or I need to add them manually? Do I need to rewrite or adapt to WiX the Custom Action we used in the VS Setup project?

Thanks

Hi Claude,

The converter supports managed custom actions. Please send me the product.wsx file on the support e-mail. I will try to help.
