Hi all,

Solved it...

My theme files was missing new page in the Bundle "File In Use" look at the new theme files and add that to your bundle, don't forget the localised text.

Hi all,
I just installed WiX 3.10 on my Dev box and checked in the "build" binaries into TFS and changed the installers to use WiX 3.10 instead of 3.9R2.
I rebuilt our product using 3.10 and the install works like a charm.
The Bundle installs a bunch of MS pre requisite software and then silently installs our product which is 7 MSI's.
I went to uninstall our product and the Bootstrapper/Bundle, which displays the Bundle uninstall page and silently uninstalls our MSI's (since we don't uninstall the MS pre requisites).
However on the first MSI (Bundle progress dialog) there is a file in use, and the Bundle's progress dialog went blank. (i.e. all the GUI on the dialog was gone). (I found out it was a file in use, by running the MSI manually and the File In Use Dialog popped up, and then a msg box appeared saying it could't close it, it was one of our EXE's) I relaunched the Bundle (I killed the process of our EXE first) and the Bundle's uninstall ran without any problems...
Has anyone else had this issue?
