LGHT0001 indicates a crash in the toolset. If you look at the full output (instead of the summary VS provides) you'll get a stack trace.

Evening Keith,

How were you able to get Candle to generate the line number?   Are you
running Candle from the command line or as part of the build process in
Visual Studio?     I am building my WIX projects in VS2015 and, even when
adding the argument -pedantic, the only information Candle generated to indicate a build error is:
     1>light.exe(0,0): error LGHT0001: Illegal characters in path.

I am using the '/l*v' argument to generate the log file.  As you indicate,
it is a challenge wading through the information.
