Using a Bootstrapper project in Visual Studio 2012/Visual Studio 2013
Windows 7 Enterprise SP1
Setup.exe never runs
The log file in AppData/Local/Temp/[WixBundleName][DateTime].log reads "Error 0x8007000d: Failed to load theme controls."
I have found that editing the Theme/Image[@ImageFile] value to anything other than Logo.png with cause the described error.
Changing the value back to Logo.png reverses the error.
Setting the value in Wix/Bundle/bal:WixStandardBootstrapperApplication[@LogoFile] appropriately changes the image and does not cause the setup.exe to produce an error.
Note I downloaded and used the default theme for HyperlinkLicense for my custom template with only change being the ImageFile attribute. It is improbable that this was a result of ill-formed xml.
In addition to JDennis' answer: If you want to change the image, you should not modify the theme file. You need to define LogoFile attribute of the bal:WixStandardBootstrapperApplication element in your bundle:
<BootstrapperApplicationRef Id="WixStandardBootstrapperApplication.HyperlinkLicense"> <bal:WixStandardBootstrapperApplication LicenseUrl="" LogoFile="myLogo.png" ThemeFile="myHyperlinkTheme.xml" LocalizationFile="myHyperlinkTheme.wxl" /> </BootstrapperApplicationRef>
