McAfee Blocks Signed WiX Burn Bundles, Signed WiX MSIs, and Signed Wix DTF Custom Actions

With the most recent rollout of McAfee at my employer, Jack Henry & Associates, Inc., McAfee is blocking execution of signed WiX Burn Bundles, signed WiX MSIs, and signed WiX DTF Custom Actions.  This impacts nearly three dozen  products and has already been seen with our customers in the field.

How can we create signed WiX Burn bundles that run without requiring McAfee to be downed?

How can we create signed WiX MSIs that run without requiring McAfee to be downed?

How can we create signed WiX DTF Custom Actions that run without requiring McAfee to be downed?

How can we deploy databases using SqlPackage.exe that deploy without requiring McAfee to be downed?

NOTE:  Using APPX is not acceptable because APPX is unavailable on Windows Servers OSs.  Operating without custom actions is also unacceptable.
