IIRC, Burn has always supported feature selection: MsiPackage/@EnableFeatureSelection

Thanks for the suggestion of using a bootstrapper. I have a simple one I use. I would prefer to use Burn but didn't since Burn (still?) didn't allow feature selection, which is an important part of the MSI installer. Looks like I need to add a WPF UI to my soon-to-be-no-longer-simple bootstrapper to properly support hyperlinks and provide feature selection.
I will need to convince some people that the WPF UI will give us much more flexibility.
