In one of the existing WiX projects, I found the following code. This might
be a silly question, but I am unable to understand how it works. I searched
for the ComponentSearch Id and Guid and the DirectorySearch Id also in the
whole solution, but couldn't find it. Please help me understand this.

<Property Id="MY_PROP_ID">
      <ComponentSearch Id="SearchServiceComponent" Guid="{SOME_GUID}">
         <DirectorySearch Id="GetSearchServiceComponentFolder" />

>From the above code, how to know which Component or Directory WiX searches
