[wix-users] MBA & .Net 4.5.2

I set the config to load with the lowest .NET Framework that the Managed BootstrapperApplication will support.  In my case, .NET Framework 4.0 is fine.  My applications require between .NET Framework 4.5 and .NET Framework 4.6, but I let <bal:Condition> and/or traditional Launch Conditions deal with this.  This allows me to maintain a graphic experience even when the prerequisites are not sufficient to install the product.

Since we have abandoned Windows XP and Vista support and require a minimum of Windows 7 SP1, this is relatively uncomplicated.

I am experimenting with an MBA (my first) and - .Net 4, 4.5 and 4.5.1 being no longer supported - I've set the target framework version to 4.5.2.

It's currently failing to run and log file reports:
  Error 0x80131902: Failed to create the managed bootstrapper application (and a  number of further 0x80131902 errors)

My guess is there's something wrong in the <supportedRuntime> and/or <supportedFramework> settings in my BootstrapperCore.config. I've tried various values without any luck. What should those settings be? (And is there anything else I should check?)
