LGHT0094 : Unresolved reference to symbol 'WixAction:InstallExecuteSequence/INSTALL'

Hi Oleg,

while playing with CustomActions I've came across the mentioned error which I thought I should report to you.
error LGHT0094 :
Unresolved reference to symbol 'WixAction:InstallExecuteSequence/INSTALL'
in section 'Product:{BC994981-76AF-4067-A485-600415ABC611}'.
This error occures if you create a ManagedAction (I think it affects any other actiontype also?) like the following
new ManagedAction(
    "ActionName", 
    Return.check, 
    When.Before, 
    Step.INSTALL,
    Condition.Installed)

The Step.INSTALL is a part of the Standard Actions Reference specification: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa372023(v=vs.85).aspx.

However it is a top-level action and it cannot be used as in your code. In fact I don't remember ever seeing it to be used in WiX based deployment definitions. Most likely what you wanted is Step.InstallInitialize.
