Probably need a newer darice.cub is needed. The darice.cub included with WiX v3 with ICE80 doesn't seem to understand ARM like it should: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/msi/ice80

Will wix 4 support ARM64 ?

Trying to package 64-bit ARM binaries with wix 3 fails. I try candle -arch arm with 'arm' in .wxs source Package->Platform and get:
error LGHT0204 : ICE80: This package contains 64 bit component 'cmp_WorkspotClientexe' but the Template Summary Property does not contain
Intel64 or x64.

arm64 isn't accepted as a parameter to candle -arch, nor is it accepted in source  Package->Platform

Or am I doing it wrong?
