[wix-users] Wix4 WIX0204 ICE35 error issue

I have recently upgraded our WiX3 installation to use WiX 4 rc3. Most of 
it went fine, but there is one detail that I have not yet figured out 
how to work around yet.

In my installation all files inside the msi have been marked as 
compressed. So I have:

<PackageName=...Compressed="no"InstallerVersion="200" > :     <MediaTemplateEmbedCab="yes"/>
           <FileId="mimcomm.dll"KeyPath="yes"Vital="no"Compressed="yes"Source="$(var.dist32)\client\mimcomm.dll"  />

I get errors for each file in the .msi as follows:

C:\dev\v111\win32\winsetup\MimerInstall\MimerSQL.wxs(474): error 
WIX0204: ICE35: File mimcomm.dll is marked compressed, but does not have 
a CAB specified in the Media table entry for its sequence number.

I have tried to make this error message go away by trying various 
<Media> tags and variations of the MediaTemplate above, but with no success.

Can someone point me in the right direction? I want all the files inside 
the .msi file, hence Compressed="yes". My installation works fine if I 
set Compressed="no".
