[wix-users] WiX ComponentGroup Condition

Doesn't look like the Control element is a legitimate child of ComponentGroup.  I apply all the Conditions to the Components and then group them together using a ComponentGroup.  Then use another Condition on the Feature.

Subject: [wix-users] WiX ComponentGroup Condition

The e-mail below is from an external source.  Please do not open attachments or click links from an unknown or suspicious origin.

I have a Feature, which references a ComponentGroup.  That ComponentGroup is defined in a Fragment in another file and contains number of Components.

This project is shared across multiple versions of the product and I would like to maintain one version of the Product.wxs file (the codebase  is common between the product versions).

Can I set a Condition on a ComponentGroup to determine whether or not to include it in the installer?
