I have VS2017 Professional installed with "Windows XP support for C++."

When I open /test/src /WixTests.sln, BurnUnitTest and DUtilUnitTest
fail to load. The message logged is:

Project 'BurnUnitTest' could not be loaded because it's missing
install components. To fix this launch Visual Studio setup with the
following selections:

This doesn't make sense to me because there is only one XP option that
can be installed, and I have just installed it in order to get msbuild
wix.proj to work (which it now does).

Has anyone used VS2017 with WiX tests?
