Don’t want to sound contradicting but make a new Wix installer project, copy/paste the code from the example, it complains that the setup ended prematurely. Looking at this https://www.firegiant.com/wix/tutorial/standard-libraries/silence-please/ also has same issue, and every other example out there.

The documentation mentions nothing about any pre-requires steps other than referencing WixUtils which I have.

Anyway, I’ve dropped this as its never going to work, and I’m going back to just doing a fully self-contained package. Executing an exe/command line is clearly a problem with Wix, many people online have the same issue.

They do certainly work, given the binary is on the system and the CA is
scheduled appropriately.

Like I said, take 60 seconds, author a real CA...
