Yes.  All my client apps support Windows 7 SP1.  We do not support Windows 7 prior to SP1.  XP didn't have support for PNG, but that's not apparently operating here.  We customize all the graphics on our MSI's and on our Burn bootstrappers.

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

We define our dialog images within a <Product> element, as described here<http://wixtoolset.org/documentation/manual/v3/wixui/wixui_customizations.html>:

    <WixVariable Id="WixUIBannerBmp" Value="WixUI_Bmp_Banner.bmp" />
    <WixVariable Id="WixUIDialogBmp" Value="WixUI_Bmp_Dialog.bmp" />

This works as expected on Windows 8/8.1/10. But on Windows 7, the dialog bitmap is not displayed (instead, empty space is displayed where it should be). Does WiX support this feature for Windows 7?
