dito - Thanks to the team for all this work.

Update: so far;

Uninstalled v3.10.3.3007.

Installed v3.11.0.1501  (without any VSExtensions), but on system where VS2015 and VS2013 are installed).

Re-built in-house CompilerExtension, including C++ CAs (Immediate, Semi, and deferred), with Lux/Nit unit tests, and a couple of C# DTF deferred CAs for IIS configuration.  No concerns observed.

Built multiple Bundles (~15), WPF mba, with around 200 MSI packages, supporting 7 locals, using many of the WixExtensions.  No concerns observed with the build process.

Staged bundle to CDN.

Validated that bundle.exe -layout was successful.

Attempted install on a 'dirty' PC as a MajorUpgrade of an earlier version of the bundle created with v3.10.3.3007.  The uninstall of the old bundle is failing due to ConfigureSmbUninsttall.  At a high level this looks like the problem reported as follows, which in that case was specific to our French strings, but in this case is happening on an English system.  I do not know if this is a concern for v3.11.0.1501 or just coincidental and related to some other problem on our end.  I will try to narrow that down tomorrow.

Thanks team for the effort.  I'd take a look but I've hoping a flight to St Croix in the AM for a week of alone time scuba diving off a sailboat.  Hopefully the whole stack looks good when I get back and I can update IsWiX to follow.
