I have in my tools/wix folder
candle.exe (and config)
light.exe (and config)
I have tools/MSBuildCommunityTasks with
The build error I get is this (and I'm really unimpressed with this error, given that it doesn't actually tell me what it can't find)
"S:\Projects\BigVisibleCruiseFolder\bvc2\bvc2.build" (default target) (1) ->
"S:\Projects\BigVisibleCruiseFolder\bvc2\src\BigVisibleCruise.Install\BigVisibleCruise.Install.wixproj" (default target) (4) ->
(Compile target) ->
S:\Projects\BigVisibleCruiseFolder\bvc2\tools\wix\Wix.targets(1240,5): error MSB6003: The specified task executable could not b
e run. The system cannot find the file specified
My guess at the moment is that WiX needs to be installed. But I won't even try this, because that would make it a horrible build process.
In fact, I'm starting to wonder whether a build tool based on XML is a bad idea. There's nothing to debug when it goes wrong.
