I don't think it's a Wix issue as much as it is a windows installer limitation.

Subject: [wix-users] Allow version string of 4 digits

IMPORTANT NOTICE - This message sourced from an external mail server outside of the Company.

Running WiX to produce an MSI/EXE fails, because we are using a version with 4 digits.

Version string may have up to 3 components - major.minor.build .
Version string is not compatible with MSI rules []

We need to support using 4 digits in our version.

Is there any way this can be done with WiX Toolset when producing an MSI/EXE?
