1. That NuGet package isn’t from us. Someone took our stuff put some of our names on it and published it. There are a few people that did this. Others were more courteous to at least put “unofficial” in the title and description.

2. Understood. Nothing wrong with that. You may want to think about helping get a fix in WiX v4 eventually so there is a future for you.

Let me clarify my question.  I am wondering how the following package gets built:  https://www.nuget.org/packages/WiX/3.11.1

Also, for clarity:  I am implementing 5490 in my fork of wix3 because my org is unable to wait until wix4 becomes stable.

There are no NuGet packages in WiX v3.

Note: issue 5490 is targeted for WiX v4, not WiX v3.

I figured out how to build the wix 3.11.1 installer from the master branch of this repo ...


... but I don't see how to build the nuget package.

What are the steps to build the nuget package for wix 3.11.1?

Background context:  I am working on a wix3 implementation of the MS Build
15 feature
