This is the error message that pops up when adding a reference to your DLL. 

DLL Name: Microsoft.Tools.ixDeployment.Extensions.dll

Error:

A reference to "...\xxx.dll" could not be added. Please make sure that the file is accessible, and that it is a valid WiX reference.

Thats strange I did not get that exception on my box. (I had to unblock the DLL after downloading though).  I have added a sample solution to the downloads try it out and let me know if you are still getting the error.
