I provisioned a brand new Windows 10 (64-bit) machine and installed VisualStudio on it. This might have been the source of my problem as it prompted me to install various .NET-related "stuff".
I then went to https://github.com/wixtoolset/wix3/releases/tag/wix3112rtm and tried running the win311.exe installer. When it runs, I get an error message stating:
"WiX Toolset requires the .NET Framework 3.5.1 Windows feature to be enabled."
I checked to see what version of .NET was installed by going executing:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319> .\MSBuild.exe -version
and it looks like 4.8.37520 is whats installed.
What do I need to do here so that the latest version of WiX is installed properly on my machine. I don't need to have the latest version of .NET, I'm just not sure whether I need to downgrade it to 3.5.1 or if I need to do something else.
