After upgrading Visual Studio and updating the Add-In Express for .NET I get the following message when trying to build the setup application (via right-click > Add-in Express > Create Setup Project)

The specified task executable location "C:\Program Files (x86)\WiX Toolset v3.10\Bin\Heat.exe" is invalid.

I updated the WIX version to 3.11
I updated the Wix Toolset Visual Studio 2017 Extension.
I re-created the setup project.

I think it would work if it said 3.11 vs 3.10 because heat.exe exists there. Where does the 3.10 come from?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello Larry,

I suppose you still have WiX 3.10 installed and (probably) registered with VS 2017 (see menu Help | About in the IDE). If this is the case, uninstall WiX 3.11, uninstall the Wix Toolset Visual Studio 2017 Extension, uninstall WiX 3.10, and install WiX 3.11 + Extension for VS 2017 anew.

Does this help?
