In very broad strokes, drawn from code we actually use and with the names
changed to protect the innocent...
"c:\program files (x86)\wix toolset v3.14\bin\insignia.exe" -ib
BOOTSTRAPPER.exe -o engine.exe
"c:\program files (x86)\wix toolset v3.14\bin\insignia.exe" -ab
engine.exe BOOTSTRAPPER.exe -o BOOTSTRAPPER.exe
Substitute your sign utility and the version of INSIGNIA.exe. Use whatever
name you want for "engine.exe".

Subject: [wix-users] signed bootstrapper exe failing to extract
i have a digitally signed bootstrapper executable that works absolutely fine
if uncompressed, but if we compress the msi it failed with...
Error 0x80070001: Failed to extract all files from container, erf: 1:2:0
for security reasons we have to sign the executable outside of wix.
Has anyone seen this before?
I see references on the net to signing the engine as well.
Is this the issue?
