[wix-users] Issues with Burn and NetFx461Redist

No, but I did download the source for 3.10.3 and found that it doesn't
Include support for 4.6.1.  I then downloaded the source for 3.11 and found
that it does so I used it and now the bundle does indeed install 4.6.1.
The issue now is getting the MSI to see that it is installed.  From that
same wxs file you provided a link to, I changed the PropertyRef to
and then checked variable WIX_IS_NETFRAMEWORK_461_OR_LATER_INSTALLED but
it's not getting set.

> Hi,
