Did you name your UI "WixUI_Minimal"? If so, that would create a collision with the WixUI_Minimal from the UI.wixext.

I cannot seem to get a custom dialog UI running. I've been using

    <UIRef Id="WixUI_Minimal"/>
    <WixVariable Id="WixUILicenseRtf"
Value="$(var.SolutionDir)PronkLicense.rtf" />

with a Reference to the WixUIExtension in Visual Studio 2017.

If I replace that with an exact copy from WixUI_Minimal.wxs (as below), I get duplicate symbol errors. If I try to remove the extension, I get missing symbol errors. What am I doing wrong?

<UI Id="WixUI_Minimal">
<TextStyle Id="WixUI_Font_Normal" FaceName="Tahoma" Size="8" /> <TextStyle Id="WixUI_Font_Bigger" FaceName="Tahoma" Size="12" /> <TextStyle Id="WixUI_Font_Title" FaceName="Tahoma" Size="9" Bold="yes" />
