[wix-users] WiX NativeImage variable Priority

Whenever I tried it I got failures removing rows. Maybe I was making some simple mistake but in the end I just wrote my own wix extension writing into my own tables consumed by my own “semi-custom” actions and moved on.

Biggest issue was using Visual Studio to contain both my extension code and my consumption of that extension.

>First quirk is that you can't modify information, you can only add it. That typically means you add entire rows.

You can remove a row and add back an updated representation of it.

I was eluding more to nuances such as the fact that the com handle
of a record becomes invalid in some cases. For example, when you
enumerate a view, the handle for the current enumeration is only
valid while the enumerator is at that position, you cannot reference
the handle and access it later.
