Enable WiX Projects in Visual Studio 15 Preview

With your fresh install of Visual Studio 15 Preview, your existing installation of WiX will not be recognized. You can quickly enable them with these two steps:

You can manually enable Visual Studio 15 compatibility with WiX 3.10 or earlier:

  1. Copy
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\WiX to
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 15.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\WiX

  2. Then execute:

    “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 15.0\Common7\IDE\devenv” /setup

When you open Visual Studio 15 Preview, WiX 3.10 or earlier projects will be compatible.
