What version are you running?


What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

N/A. WiX:

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1.  New XYZ solution (doesn't matter--windows forms, console, wpf)
2.  Add a WiX installer project to the solution
3.  Attempt to install any NuGet package

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

I'd expect it to work. Instead it fails. NuGet doesn't understand that projects can come without a `References` node.

The console reports the following:

Failed to generate binding redirects for 'HerpADerp'. 'Microsoft.Tools.WindowsInstallerXml.VisualStudio.WixProjectNode' does not contain a definition for 'References'

What operating system are you using? What browser?

WiX 3.5, Win7 VS 2k10 sp1
