Experimental results part I

So far the results of The Experiment have been minimal—I’ve received one public report and one private report—but 100 percent successful. So we need more data but so far it’s looking good.

One issue has come up, however: Build failures with customized dialog sets. Fragments that define dialog sets need to include all the UI elements, properties, and WiX bind-time variables used by the dialogs in that set. By referring to the WixUICostingPopupOptOut WiX variable from the individual dialogs, custom dialog sets must also provide a value. You can provide a value for WixUICostingPopupOptOut anywhere in your project but the easiest is to do so in the same fragment with your dialog set. Just add this line:

<WixVariable Id="WixUICostingPopupOptOut" Value="1" Overridable="yes" />

  1. Sounds promising. I’ve had this problem before, but sadly am no longer able to reproduce it. If it does crop up in testing, I’ll be sure to send you a report
