[wix-users] Sequence attribute between XmlFile and XmlConfig...

My understanding is that XmlFile is an older more limited implementation than XmlConfig.  I do not think there is any relation between them as I believe they use different custom actions and different MSI tables.  I don't use both of them but you could confirm those understanding by checking you MSI with Orca.  I think that the install time sequence of the components is what will drive the issue.

Subject: [wix-users]  Sequence attribute between XmlFile and XmlConfig...

Hi Everyone,

I've got a stray question: In editing an xml file, I'm using util:XmlFile in one component to do one set of edits, and util:XmlConfig in another component to conditionally delete an element of the same xml file.  My question is: do the Sequence attributes of the XmlFile and XmlConfig elements have any relation to one another?  Which edit (assuming the condition is satisfied) happens first?

Thanks or the information.
