Can't create a managed bootstrap installer
View gist:63a6b93bf84773bd99ac

This is with version 3.9r2 (latest version)

I am having trouble creating a managed bootstrap installer. I followed the instructions I could find, and even referenced how you guys did it in your official wix installer exe.

The quick and dirty exception is coming from "src\ext\BalExtension\mba\host\host.cpp" on line 510.

hr = pAppFactory->Create(pEngine, pCommand, ppApplication);
ExitOnFailure(hr, "Failed to create the bootstrapper application.");

Here are some things you can do with Gists in GistBox.
View 0_reuse_code.js
// Use Gists to store code you would like to remember later on
console.log(window); // log the "window" object to the console
You can’t perform that action at this time.
