[wix-users] Language condition on file?

Or another approach is to have a single WiX setup project, in which you
specify multiple cultures, as you indicated, but in the MediaTemplate
element specify an external cab.

Then in the MsiPackage element used in a bundle chain (or through some
script) change the name of each msi to include the culture in the name of
the msi and copy the msi and the cab for each language to a common output

This results in an output folder which contains a single cab file (as the
cab in each batch build is identical) and culture named msi files.

I have not tried your suggested approach of conditionally including culture
specific files but I assume it may be possible.  I use the above approach.
