[wix-users] Patch not showing up in the 'View Installed updates' with Burn

Still not working. Like I said though patches are installing just not showing up in 'view installed updates'

I added this to my Burn project.

 <RelatedBundle Id="1BB6FDE2-E216-4450-C7EB-8DD633CBB57F" Action="Patch"/>

And my MSI project has this as the ProductUpgradeCode.  Is that right?

Any other ideas?


===== Included burn code. Really simple here. =====

   <Bundle Name="$(var.OutputFileName)" Version="$(var.ProductVersion)"
           Manufacturer="Software, Inc."
      <RelatedBundle Id="BBB6FDE2-E216-4450-A7EB-8DD633CBB57F" Action="Patch"/>
      <BootstrapperApplicationRef Id="WixStandardBootstrapperApplication.HyperlinkLicense" >

         <!--down loading and installing .NET 4.6.x does not work even though it is in the wix docs-->
         <!--work around is in the NetFx642.wxs file-->
         <!--TODO - modify the NetFx642 file to support 6.4.2 - it only now works with 6.4.1-->
         <PackageGroupRef Id="NetFx461Redist" />
         <!--===================  END   ========================-->

         <MsiPackage SourceFile="$(var.MSIBuildPath)" DisplayInternalUI="yes"/>

"My patches are based off of the MSI and not the final bootstrapper. I think that is right or as I am writing this...  do I have to patch against the Bootstrapper?"

What works for us is setting the RelatedBundle Id to the upgrade code of the bundle being patched.  The upgrade code for the patch bundle can just be a new GUID.
