Where can I find documentation for the wrapInScript option to runProgram? I do not see it in the online docs for V17. This option fixed a problem everywhere that I needed to run 7zip when I upgraded to V17.1.

I have 113 instances of the runProgram element (some for 7zip, some for msiexec, some for other programs) in my installer - I'd like to understand where this is needed and where it is not, rather than adding it to all 113 instances or by trial-and-error testing each code path.

wrapInScriptis a work around for APIs for running processes to allow certain edge cases to be handled properly. For this particular action we prefer to suggest using it on a case by case basis, which allows us to troubleshoot if the cause is really a bug or rather an improper use of the action.
