[wix-users] No-UI bundle

I used that blog and https://bryanpjohnston.com/2012/09/28/custom-wix-managed-bootstrapper-application/ to get this far.  That's when you have an actual UI running.  I just want the bootstrapper to hang around until the end or quit, but let the MSI's UI run through.  Literally all I want from this thing is to call the MSI with a custom log file name/location, that's it. Actually, I will probably also add a prerequisite for .net 4.6.1 on there as well.  Point is, the main reason I need the bootsrtapper is because you cannot modify the logging options once you are in the MSI code.
