WiX v3.10.1 is a maintenance release of WiX v3.10 with the following important fixes:
- @barnson implemented a workaround for a Visual Studio 2015 issue that caused certain WiX standard custom actions to fail when run on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. Bug 4902|Bug 4908
- @jchoover fixed a bug that prevented some attributes of the WixStandardBootstrapperApplication element from functioning correctly. Bug 4899
- @PavelAnfimov fixed a bug that prevented hyperlinks in WixStdBA from working on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. Bug 4772
As you can see, we had a couple of problems with Windows XP support. Though I ran a few manual tests on XP during and at the end of v3.10, that wasn’t sufficient to uncover the bugs. Next time, I’ll put out an explicit call for testing support from folks still supporting Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. We’re going to need your help to keep bitrot at bay!
