        Description

        In Mach,3, wix tools are not usually present, and as a result this part of the test is usually skipped.
        On a windows 10 machine with wix tools installed EmptyFolderPackageTest will fail because the command
        msiexec /a <output-path>/EmptyFolderTest.msi TARGETDIR=<path>
        will extract the payload into <path> without including any empty folders.
        on the other hand
        msiexec /i <output-path>/EmptyFolderTest.msi
        will extract the payload into the install-dir correctly (with the empty folders included)
        This can be seen also by manually running msiexec.
