[wix-users] Creating an installer for a large number of files

I'm trying to create an installer for a node.js application with about 70,000 files, mostly inside node_modules. I used heat to harvest the directory (one component per file). When I run the installer, it doesn't get past the initial "Please wait while Windows configures ... " dialog even after waiting several hours.

Is this simply too many files for Windows installer to handle?
