Does it work if you use the installer at http://wixtoolset.org/releases/v3-11-0-1528/ instead of NuGet and the latest extension at https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=RobMensching.WixToolsetVisualStudio2017Extension?

Subject: [wix-users] Build error: The WiX Toolset v3 build tools must be installed
I have the latest version of Wix installed - v220.127.116.118. I'm using wix in VS2017 Professional.
When I build my project, I get this error:
The WiX Toolset v3 build tools must be installed to build this project. To download the WiX Toolset, see http://wixtoolset.org/releases/
A google search shows that there is a bug report
https://github.com/appveyor/ci/issues/1481 that FeodorFitsner closed earlier today.
Next, I tried to update my package using NuGet, but it installed v3.10 and that did not solve the problem.
Here is how I managed to get around the problem"
- Uninstalled 3.10 from the project, deleted the package from the
- Uninstalled and reinstalled Wix3.11,
- Added a new project, this time being careful to select a V3 setup
project. This is probably the clue as templates for v3 and v4 are available and that may be what is causing the issue.
Being a newbie, I had posted a bug report a few days back - WixInstallFolder #5550. This seems to be related.
