Unresolved reference to symbol 'WixBootstrapperApplication:WixExtendedBootstrapperApplication.HyperlinkLicense' in section 'Bundle:Sample Burn Installation"

I am new to Wix and Bootstrapper.
I have created a msi using wix 3.10
I have to generate exe and add some pre installation condition checks for msi. To provide these I am using Bootstrapper. And to utilize my msi's UI, I am trying to use custom Bootstrapper.
I have tried following steps to include custom bootstrapper
  1. Added the reference "WixBalExtensionExt.dll" in my customBootstrapper application
  2. And added the code from "http://wixextba.codeplex.com/SourceControl/changeset/view/22436#Examples/Bundle1.wxs" to load the custom BA in my project.
  3. Compiled the project and got the error "error LGHT0094: Unresolved reference to symbol 'WixBootstrapperApplication:WixExtendedBootstrapperApplication.HyperlinkLicense' in section 'Bundle:Sample Burn Installation"
Please let me know, if I have missed anything here.

That all looks ok - can you make you are not referencing the standard WixBalExtension.dll as well as the extended one.

Thank you for the response Neil.
I have removed the standard WixBalExtension.dll. Still I get the same unresolved external error.

Are you using the 3.10 download http://wixextba.codeplex.com/releases/view/617777?
For info 3.10 already includes most of the features of the extendedBA - do you actually need to use this?

Yes. I am using extendedBA from http://wixextba.codeplex.com/releases/view/617777. As the documentation says only this version of extendedBA supports Wix 3.10.

I just remembered this:
Note: if you have downloaded the zip file on Windows 7 you may find the assembly is blocked and must be unblock before referencing it.

Can you check it is unblocked.
