I am facing similar issue, I tried to apply the hotfix as you mentioned in above post. 
This hotfix worked partially for me.
It started showing up few panels, but still not able to see all panels from Pre-Install sequence.

This is happening after migration, same sequence work in InstallAnywhere2020.
Also, I am getting this message in consoleLog "invalid entry size (expected 87092 but got 65536 bytes) " when I am building installer. 

Whom should I contact? 
Thanks in advance.
