Files and Folders designer does not show target files


The Files and Folder designer does not show the target Files or Folders when adding them.
Is there a dependency I am missing?

So i found that the last functioning FilesAndFoldersDesigner.dll for VS2012 was included in 2.4.14006.1.
Is this something you might look into in the future?

That's really strange to me. Is this for stock XML that IsWiX authored? The F&F designer doesn't really have any dependency on Visual Studio. IsWiX can be run without VS. The only VS integration is the AddIn that allows you to send an open document in VS to IsWiX without having to manually start the app and file | open | browse | click click click.

Hi yes, using the templates included in installation.
I thought I might be missing some dependencies included in later versions of VS.
It might be that I have some bugged application/programdata data, I can look into that maybe if I am the only one having issues.

So an update on this issue.
I found that setting the directory hard resolves the issue e.g. "C:\Etc\Etc\Etc"
The relative path does not resolve correctly for me in the FileandFolder designer it seems, e.g. "....\"
Don't know if anyone else has noticed this?
