Hello All,

One of the application has 50,000 files in one MSI. Currently the build is
successful but the installation skips to install ~20K files. We found that
MSI has a limitation of 32767 files maximum and they have suggested editing
the limit of database column to overcome this issue. Please find the
details in below link.


Is there a possibility to configure this is WiX directly without needing to
edit tables and databases manually?


Best regards
