ICE failure Error217

Apr 16, 2015 at 9:51 AM
When running a build, we got an error saying "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:
If you get this error after following the guidance, the cause might be that the account that you are running the build as is not a Local Administrator.
Add the account to the Local Administrators Group, and make sure you restart the Build service.
