In the MSI Settings->Company Name, remove the ö character and see if you are able to build the MSI.

Are you able to create installers for psf or ps1 files? Does this error occur on all installers on this machine?

Have you tried disabling anti-virus? Maybe something is preventing the msi from creating.

The reason I suggested the character change was because it would fail to create the MSI on my test 8.1 unless I changed the company name. Otherwise I was able to build the installer without issue.

cant build msis of any file/project in pss.
can't disable Microsoft Forefront due to corporate policies.

I've not been in contact with additional packaging solution

did some digging..

you call MD5CryptoServiceProvider from heat.exe, which is not FIPS compliant, therefor i get an invalidoperation-exception: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms, since i've got fips compliance enforced, again corp. policy..

I can turn it off temporarly via HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\FipsAlgorithmPolicy | Enabled:1 -> 0

and the MSIs builds as expected..

any chance of changing provider to sha or so for hashing?

The MSI's are build with the WIX toolkit. You can download the source
from http://wixtoolset.org/
and roll your own version.

either that or if there's any convenient pre- and post- msibuild events where i can insert a oneliner to toggle the FipsAlgorithmPolicy-value via set-itemproperty?
