I have just started using Wix and following some tutorials. 

I am getting an error “Unresolved Reference to symbol ‘Directory:ProgramMenuFolder’ in section ‘Fragment’

Reading the documentation it indicates that Wix have these available though the installer environment as predefined names. Therefore, why is this error occurring. 

I am trying to build my WiX in staller from within Visual Studio 2015 and have attached a screenshot of the error and the associated code.


Thanks in advance
