[wix-users] Bug: Install fails on XP in WixSchedInternetShortcuts

The custom action code was built with the XP toolset and actually begins to execute but crashes in what appears to be an innocuous API call. Please open a bug; it needs more research and debugging.

I don't think so. It is scheduled in exactly the same place when using either 3.9 or 3.10. Using InstEd to look at the msi shows there are 4 CAs associated with the WixCA binary - and WixSchedInternetShortcuts is the first one to have run.

My suspicion would be that the DLL may have been compiled in a non-XP valid way (not sure what to look for, but using PEDUMP, I can see that
wixca.dll(wix9) was linked with v12.0 and wix10 was with v14.0).
