Hello Huy,
Thanks for the suggestion.
After adding the payloads under BootstrapperApplicationRef element getting
this error

Bundle.wxs(53,0): error CNDL1127: A UX Payload
('E:\Work\bin\payload\x64\MyPayload.dll') was marked for something other
than embedded packaging,
possibly because it included a @DownloadUrl attribute.
At present, UX Payloads must be embedded in the Bundle, so the requested
packaging is being ignored.

Any idea about this ?
As per your suggestion I have added the payload like this

Id="WixStandardBootstrapperApplication.RtfLargeLicense" >




                <Payload Compressed="no"
SuppressSignatureVerification="yes" />


Please let me know if there is any way to resolve this situation .

Thanks & Regards
