Strange issue when using ManagedAction

Mar 22, 2015 at 8:29 AM
I have a strange issue when using a ManagedAction in VS WixSharp project (.NET 4.0 console + nuget package WixSharp)

When I try to build the project, I get an error :
Can not find file WixIIsExtension.dll in c:\test\testwixmanagedaction

As far as I know, my Wix project does not contain anything requiring IisExtensions (it does not contain code for creating IIs application or so).

When I copy the WixIISExtension.dll in the project folder, everything compiles, and the setup seems to work (managed action is executing en performing as expected).

But why is there a dependency on WixIISExtension.dll ?

The only thing my managedaction does is setting an property:
public static ActionResult GetMyProperty(Session session)
   session["MyProperty"] = "TestValue";
   return ActionResult.Success;
var project = new Project 
    Dirs = ...,
    Properties =  new [] { new Property("MyProperty","DefaultValue") },
   Actions = new WixSharp.Action[] 
       new ManagedAction("GetMyProperty",Return.check,When.Before,Step.LaunchConditions,Condition.NOT_BeingRemoved,Sequence.InstallUISequence)

It was an extremely silly mistake in the implementation of DefaultRefAssemblies, which pointed the property to the WixExtensions list.
The problem is fixed (v1.0.9.1) and the faulty release (v1.0.9.0) is removed.
