The goal is to have http://wixtoolset.org/development/building-wix/ be all
you need to start building. I know that before VS2017 I got it down to spin
up a clean VM, install VS2015 with XP C++ support, and you could build the
whole toolset. We rely on other people to come on here and ask for help
when that page isn't enough.
