That would be very nice. However, do note that we can't take managed code custom actions into the WiX Standard CustomActions. Managed code creates long term dependencies on a platform that may ship side-by-side and can break today's users in the future. That is why all WiX Standard CustomActions are written in native code.

Subject: [wix-devs] XML file search

I have added a new feature request to add capability to search in xml file like RegSearch or DirSearch.

I would like to hear opinion if this feature will be welcome and if some developers added this to their setups already.
We had to implement this in fast mode using .NET custom action and custom table.

I would like to add this to WIX toolset in more professional manner so that every one can use this.
