Wixproj's don't support nuget.

Add a dummy c# application to the solution and add the nuget to that.

Subject: [wix-users] How to use MSBuild Extension Pack via NuGet?

Hi all. I want to use MSBuild Extension Pack in my WiX 3.11 project, but I'd rather not install it explicitly if I have a choice and would rather use it automatically (so that next developer does not have to know about it). There is a NuGet package, but when I try to install it to my wixproj project I get this message:

Could not install package 'MSBuild.Extension.Pack 1.9.1'. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets 'Unsupported,Version=v0.0', but the package does not contain any assembly references or content files that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author.

Maybe I should ask in a different place, but maybe someone here already has experience with this problem.
