[wix-users] Windows 10 and IIS WebApplication

Not sure I can add much except that I have similar authoring on Win10 and have not noticed a problem.  My web app setup is new and not really complete yet, so I don't have a lot of test cycles on all OS from Win7 or later, but I have been testing on win 10.  I don't name my website 'Default' and I define a Directory (which I assume your F1783711615 is also doing).

Hi everyone,

I have a package I'm prototyping for some fellow developers. It is supposed to install and configure, amongst other things, an IIS WebApplication. On Windows 8.1 it works beautifully; on Windows 10 everything seems to happen as expected except that the WebApplication does not configure. Here's the block from our WXS that does that.

                  <Iis:WebAppPool Id="WebAppPool2cc2f66918dd4de9a2693a3d0732bf4f" ManagedPipelineMode="Integrated" Name="i-eq" />
                  <Iis:WebSite Id="WebSite2fe11e8efd06423d838918baec062421" Description="Default" Directory="F1783711615">
                    <Iis:WebAddress Id="WebAddress3f75be7c6d9f4c3685c518edd69d0c8a" Port="80" Secure="no" />
                    <Iis:WebVirtualDir Id="WebVirtualDir879f7a08e2674b36a93cb099d3eeac9d" Alias="i-eq" Directory="F1576799264">
                      <Iis:WebApplication Id="WebApplication7cffb78e769841a5985aa9cf8df6d23a" Name="i-eq" WebAppPool="WebAppPool2cc2f66918dd4de9a2693a3d0732bf4f" />
                      <Iis:WebDirProperties Id="WebDirPropertiese67d26891fda4a8dbbd65d8e89a541be" />

I'm looking in the respective verbose logs but as yet do not see anything that looks significant. I am yet to be given a Win10 VM to use, so I'm going on the log alone at present. Anything I should be looking for? I see that on the Windows 10 machine system restore points are not turned on. Is this somehow needed?
