@All,

The Designer for WiX loads synchronously and VS 2019 doesn't like this. It suggests preventing such extensions from loading and the cause of the issue was: the WiX Designer didn't load. This is controlled by this flag:
- Tools | Options | Environment | Extensions | Allow synchronous autoload of extensions (Not recommended. Requires restarting Microsoft Visual Studio)

Selecting this check box allows WiX Designer to load.
