I don't think it's throwing more exceptions than v3. Do you have any

Managed code BA's have a DLL provided by WiX that starts up the .NET
runtime (dnchost.dll for .NET Core BA's). After starting the runtime, it
calls into an entry point in the managed code. That entry point is the code
that is generated by WixToolset.Dnc.HostGenerator. It is generated code
instead of using reflection so that it can be possible to use trimming.
What's the problem with using that package?
