Keep .wixpdb file

Hi,

Is there a way to prevent the .wixpdb from being deleted when generating the .msi file using Compiler.BuildMsi()?

Thanks!

project.PreserveTempFiles = true; will prevent deleting temp file but only the ones created by Wix# not by WiX tools (e.g. *.wixpdb).

The best way to solve this would be to use BuildMsiCmd:
project.UI = WUI.WixUI_InstallDir;
project.GUID = new Guid("6f330b47-2577-43ad-9095-1861ba25889b");
...
Process.Start(project.BuildMsiCmd())
       .WaitForExit();
