Panel::Software Customized WiX Edition

Panel::Software provides a customized edition of WiX built on top of WiX 3.11.2 with the following changes

  • Add burn command line argument to log to console: /clog or /conlog
  • 6252: Fix reboot with related bundles when "-norestart" is specified on command line
  • Bundle/@RunAsAdmin attribute creates a bootstrapper that requires elevation when launched
  • Support MSI transactions: Execute multiple MSI/MSP packages as an atomic package with unified commit/rollback behavior.
  • Add attribute MediaTemplate/@AggressiveSmartCabbing: Whether or not to reuse equivalent files' cab entry. Versioned files are considered equivalent if they have equal name, size, version, and language. Unversioned files are considered equivalent if they have equal size and MD5 hash value. When a file is found to have an equivalent, it is placed in the same cab file and it's source is changed to the same source, so WiX built-in Smart Cabbing reuses the same cab entry for both files. AggressiveSmartCabbing only works on compressed, non-patch-added, and not merged-moduled files.
  • 6521: Support auto-assign of payloads to containers in bundles.
  • Support canceling the build when using MSBuild
  • RemotePayload can be specified on any package payload rather than the main setup file
  • Add heat.exe harvest type "payload_dir" to harvest a PayloadGroup. Specify -url link to set base DownloadUrl for remote payloads
  • 6144: Support multiple attached containers in bundles. Enables bootstrappers larger than 2GB
  • 6174: Fix bloated bootstrapper when authoring detached containers
  • 6309: Fix non-vital rollback boundary handling of failures.
  • 6298: Fix extracting bootstrappers with detached containers
  • 6348: Fix .NET chaining response to files-in-use message.
  • 6450: Support multiple firewall rules with the same name.
  • 6472: Bundle can install multi-instance MSI packages. See Authoring Multiple Instances with Instance Transforms.
  • 5220: Automatically add logging flag for any burn ExePackage and related bundles
  • 1488: Add -inc ".pat1;.pat2" and -exc ".pat3;.pat4" options to heat dir to include and exclude files matching widlcard patterns
  • 5783: Allow MSMQ Windows Feature to be enabled during the installation.
  • 4676: bafunctions can implement IBootstrapperApplication or IBootstrapperBAFunction
  • Add -ssub flag to heat dir to harvest files in top folder only and skip subfolders
  • Add binder variables: !(bind.packageVersion.Major.ID), !(bind.packageVersion.Minor.ID), !(bind.packageVersion.Build.ID), !(bind.packageVersion.Revision.ID)
  • Util extension PermissionEx: Registry permissions are inheritable
  • When using MSBuild HarvestDirectory target, support generating a random preprocessor variable
  • Add attribute Chain/@Restart: "yes" to force restart; "no" to disable restart
  • Add command line flag "-autorestart" to restart if needed
  • wixstdba: Specifying "-forcerestart' on the command line forces reboot at the end of the installation
  • Changes by WiX up to git commit 376423b8101f4b59ee865e8a255cfe190fa5a7f1
  • Build for .NET Framework 4.0
  • Not overwriting log files when retrying to execute a package
  • Support sending custom messages on embedded pipe
