Looking at the docs I am not sure you can.. - https://github.com/wixtoolset/wix3/blob/develop/src/chm/documents/msbuild/task_reference/light.html.md

Specifies an additional .cub file that the linker should use when running ICE validation. This is equivalent to the -cub <file.cub> switch in light.exe.

How do I specify more than one additional CUB file for MSI validation to be done in the Light task using MSBuild?

I just learnt that
does not work (this is interpreted as one invalid file path)

However the light command line allows
Light.exe -cub c:\path\Cub1.cub -cub c:\path\Cub2.cub MyPackage.wixobj

So do I have to specify the CUB files as LinkerAdditionalOptions in MSBuild? (I actually do not like that, because it is more error-prone...)

Best regards
