I can't build my Wix projects with Team Build

Problem: I get the following error when I attempt to build a solution using TFS that contains a Windows Installer XML (WIX) project: "light.exe: Error executing ICE action 'ICE01'. The most common cause of this kind of ICE failure is an incorrectly registered scripting engine. See http://wix.sourceforge.net/faq.html#Error217 for details and how to solve this problem. The following string format was not expected by the external UI message logger: "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."." Solution: The build service account must be in the Administrators group on the build machine.

SharePoint strikes again and takes down Release Management

Problem: My Release Management Application Pool (ReleaseManagementAppPool) is stopped and will not stay running. Solution: Open the ApplicationHost.config from “%systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\config” and add “preCondition="integratedMode,bitness64"” to the SPNativeRequestModule entry: <add name="SPNativeRequestModule" image="C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\isapi\spnativerequestmodule.dll" preCondition="integratedMode,bitness64" /> Explanation: This is most likely to appear if you have SharePoint 2013 installed on the same server hosting Release Management.  This issue with SharePoint may cause any 32 bit website from working.
