You'll probably want to debug the WiX Toolset to understand that one.

Subject: [wix-users] WiXLib Project Throwing Compile Error

I have a WiXLib project in the Visual Studio solution provided by my client. I have WiX 3.11 installed on my machine and have VS 2019 Professional also installed. However, when I try to build this project, I get the following error.

*Method not found: 'Void
System.String, Microsoft.Tools.WindowsInstallerXml.Platforms)*

It is throwing this error from *Candle.exe*.

Has anyone faced this? If so, please help

*Note*: They have used a custom Nuget package with WiX (3.14) binaries (not sure if it is to avoid building this on a server without WiX installation),  but I have commented the call to this custom target which has this reference. However, the error still persists.
