[wix-devs] 6204 - Add support for high DPI to the Burn engine, Take 2

How are you thinking the bundle would declare DPI awareness? I'm +1 on the feature though I'd fully support if it were via manifest and we assumed DPI awareness in a v4 BA (2020+).

And +1 on getting rid of GDI+.

In order to finish the High-DPI support for wixstdba, Burn needs to declare that it is per-monitor DPI aware. As I said in the issue, there's two choices - manifest or programmatically.

I would rather do it programmatically so the Bundle can decide the DPI awareness mode. Also, I was able to do everything in thmutil without using
GDI+ so I would like to revert what was done in
https://github.com/wixtoolset/issues/issues/4541. Thoughts?
