Hi gentlemen!

I get this error when trying to build a WiX setup project.

Severity Code Description Project Project Rank Path File Line Column Category Source Suppression State Tool
Error Синтаксическая ошибка в имени файла, имени папки или метке тома NadstroykaPlusSetup(1.0.0) 2 light.exe 0 1 Build

What could be the problem here?

Hello Nikita,

A note to all: when translated to English, the error message above reads: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

The error message means the file or folder name isn't correct; Windows doesn't support such names. I assume there's a character that causes the issue. Say, in a file manager that I use, I can't create a file having an asterisk in its name; more accurately, the error occurs when file manager tries to save the file: at this moment, it shows the exact error message you received.
