Before today's meeting officially began, we got a glimpse into Rob's musical tastes, which should be enticement enough to join us live on the FireGiant Twitch channel for the live meetings. Don't worry -- none of us sang; but now we're starting to think about a WiX theme song..
Add Property for disable FilesInUse and MsiRMFilesInUse, from @Horcrux7 and Choose which dialog is shown during install/update when files are in use, from @dukorama, both coincidentally came in this week requesting control over how Windows Installer handles UI for files in use. Windows Installer is what actually executes packages and it has options to control files in use reporting.
WixStdBA hangs with DisplayInternalUI in certain cases reports bugs from @rseanhall's spelunking in Burn and WixStdBA handling of
DisplayInternalUI. Sean fixed the bugs in WiX v4 and provided a pull request for WiX v3. He's looking for feedback on how people are running into the bugs to judge whether it's worth the risk of taking the fix.
Wix binder is failing to find burn.exe for arm64 projects and Burn is failing to detect WOW process on arm64 machines, from @NikolaMilosavljevic, report issues using the new-to-WiX-v3.14 support for the ARM64 platform. Nikola supplied a pull request for one issue and plans another for the other. We love bugs but we love bugs with pull requests even more.
We have a couple of issues that are candidates to be fixed in WiX v3.14 so our plan is to wait a bit for those fixes to come in and do another build of WiX v3.14 after next week's meeting.
