[NuGet 2.7] New package restore doesn't work with Wix projects


The new package restore workflow doesn't work for Wix (and likely other) project types.
I've attached a repro solution.

When you run NuGet.exe restore on the solution file, you'll notice that the package referenced in the Wix project is not restored.

Expected: The package should be restored.

Further info:
While looking at a fix for #3596, I found out that ProjectInSolution.cs checks if the property ProjectType is 'KnownToBeMSBuildFormat', but this is not the case for Wix projects (and I assume all other projects not known to MSBuild).

My alternative approach as mentioned in the issue above fixes this as well.

Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate
Windows 7
NuGet 2.7RC
