ThmViewer doesn't report failures in your theme XML. It just silently eats them.

Great tool. Poor error handling.

Subject: [wix-users] Purpose of ThmViewer

In the WiX documentation
 I found the last sentence very promissing:
"To view a theme file without having to build a bundle, you can use the
ThmViewer.exe which is located in %WIX%\bin\."

I expected a graphical visualization of the single pages. But what I saw is
a tree view with the contained page names: (Embedded image moved to file:
Clicking on the page names shows no reaction.

Is this the intended feature set of ThmViewer or should I see more?
