I have no idea of the answer to your questions, but I suggest you follow the evidence that you have.  I would look at the Windows Installer documentation to find out the size of the Condition column in the ControlEvent table, and I would look inside my MSI using something such as Orca or InstEdIt to see if the condition in the ControlEvent table has been truncated.  Then you will have your answer.

Subject: [wix-users] String Overflow warning in ControlEvent condition

I am having a custom dialog. The Next button on that dialog has a couple of conditions based on which other dialogs are invoked. The conditions are somewhat long, based on some logic. But the light command throws a warning like below.

warning LGHT1076 : ICE03: String overflow (greater than length permitted in column); Table: ControlEvent, Column: Condition

Can this warning be safely ignored? If ignored, will the conditions still work as expected?

Is there a way to fix this, other than changing the logic inside the condition?

Please advise.
