1. What is the exact issue?

2. For an exact time frame, ask again in about 3 or so months. In the meantime, you can, of course, use any WiX v3.x build you want... including your own private build.

PS If you want guarantees, you should check out the Enterprise Support Program provided by FireGiant. I know the team there, they are very responsive to customer issues.

Hi all,

We are currently using WiX 3.11.1 for a few WiX installers (we use InstallShield for most projects).

For a few of the WiX installers, luckily we do not need to do patches because we are BLOCKED...

Our build process is run in an Elevated process, which craps out with Melt.exe and Torch.exe.

  1.  Are there any current work arounds for this?
     *   I have tried using "runas /trustlevel:0x20000" and "PSExec.exe" with no joy...
     *   Also tried using PowerShell scripts as well...
  2.  When is 3.14 going to be released which supposedly has a fix for this issue, an exact time frame please... since we cannot continue to use WiX for new projects if we can't create patches...
