With contributor Sean now living 15 time zones away from Rob and 12 away from me, today's meeting was the first we held at 4pm Pacific instead of our (formerly) normal schedule of 9:30am. We don't have a firm schedule for future meetings and might even alternate to try to find meeting times that let more people participate live on Twitch. Stay tuned to the wix-devs mailing list and the WiX Toolset Twitter account for announcements.
heat.exe and fips is an old issue that came back due to a volunteer offering to implement the feature, complete with a pull request. We reviewed the pull request and Herohtar updated it in almost real time as the meeting continued. We'll take the change in WiX v3.14.
Error 0x80070022 during cache of compressed package, from @dan-olsen, describes a problem getting packages from a multi-disk compressed bundle. As packages are cached in their order in the chain, it's important to order packages by the media you're laying out.) It might be possible to prevent Windows from showing UI on the disk change, however; I volunteered to look into this for WiX v4.0.
Visual Studio 2019 Using 2.3GB of memory with no documents or solutions open., from @madskristensen, is a perhaps-too-brief report on a bug in Votive. We took the issue into WiX v4.x for investigation.
Files in Use does not show running application or window name, from @sqeezy, reports that the files in use dialog shown for a bundle doesn't properly show the window titles holding files in use. We need a bit more information, so we'll keep this issue open until we hear more.
Wix Standard Bootstrapper and RemotePayload redirects to amazonaws.com fail, from @eteeuw-groeneveld, reports a problem when using a GitHub release URL that redirects to Amazon S3 storage. We know S3 URLs work and we know redirected URLs work, so there's some problem in the combination. It should be a straightforward problem to fix, once someone's spent some time in the debugger stepping through the Burn download code. We took this issue into WiX v4.x.
COM+ allow for ICOMAdminCatalog::ImportComponent, from @EricAllen-tr, requests support for an alternate method of specifying a COM+ dependency for a component that isn't correctly registered. It might be a big change, so we're looking to discuss the design on the wix-devs mailing list to judge whether it's a safe addition to WiX v3.
