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

  • Fix WiX issue 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.
  • 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
  • Fix WiX issue 6144: Support multiple attached containers in bundles. Enables bootstrappers larger than 2GB
  • Fix WiX issue 6174: Fix bloated bootstrapper when authoring detached containers
  • Fix Wix issue 6309: Fix non-vital rollback boundary handling of failures.
  • Fix WiX issue 6298: Fix extracting bootstrappers with detached containers
  • Fix WiX issue 6348: Fix .NET chaining response to files-in-use message.
  • Fix WiX issue 6450: Support multiple firewall rules with the same name.
  • Changes by WiX up to git commit 376423b8101f4b59ee865e8a255cfe190fa5a7f1
  • Build for .NET Framework 4.0
