[wix-users] How do I handle SetupFilesCleanup and SetupFiles Extract in Wix

I upgraded to v4.0 but there ran into a bunch of issues. Light.exe fails with error Value cannot be null.
I read about it and it seems the issue was fixed in 3.6. So, for now I will continue on 3.5 maybe I will have to write custom actions around those tasks.
But I wonder how everybody else is handling the extraction of the msi . I thought it should be something inbuilt in Wix.

think for the support file thing there is some news in WiX 4.x series:
## WixBuild: Version 4.0.3729.0
* @barnson: Adding some useful WcaUtil functions from FireGiant.
* Add QuietExecCapture to get process output as a string.
* Add WcaExtractBinaryToBuffer, WcaExtractBinaryToFile, and WcaExtractBinaryToString to extract content from the Binary table.
but for others: Yes if that is required unfortunately CA is necessary IMHO
