WiX 3.10.2 has security fixes related to DLL hijacking -
https://www.firegiant.com/blog/2016/1/20/wix-v3.10.2-released/.  The
hardened Burn engine has exposed a GDI+ issue already -
If the only difference between your two bundles is that one was built with
3.9 and the other with 3.10.2, then I would recommend filing another
Connect issue for this.

> It works fine and returns the domain as expected on all systems when
> my installer is built with WiX 3.9.
> It behaves the same on all system with WiX 3.10.2, except Windows
