In this release, tons of fixes plus a new tool (tallow - to help generate source code). Also, new features include: ability to create .pcp files (Patch Creation Packages), support for configurable Merge Modules, and several other user requested features. Finally, there are a number of deprecated features and minor schema changes so upgrade carefully. The goal is to lockdown breaking changes as soon as possible (hopefully, in next couple months).
The Windows Installer XML v2.0.1706.0 post Cinco de Mayo release. Lots of small fixes and one huge perf fix that could be significant if you created uncompress layouts with deep directory structures.
The Windows Installer XML toolset v2.0.1629.0 release. The significant add in this release is the "Binder" that handles all the heavy lifting of generating the MSI file and laying out the files. This is one step closer to getting a solid object model for building MSI/MSM files via managed code.
Fixed a few more known issues in the compiler and linker plus a number of user submitted bugs in the decompiler. Hoepfully soon, all we'll have left is issues in the decompiler and documentation.
The Windows Installer XML toolset v2.0.1615.0 has just been released. Lots of small bug fixes, a little more documentation, and a couple examples added to the sources. More fixes to come in the future. The Windows Installer XML (WiX) is a toolset that builds Windows installation packages from XML source code. The toolset supports a command line environment that developers may integrate into their build processes to build MSI and MSM setup packages.
The Windows Installer XML (WiX) is a toolset that builds Windows installation packages from XML source code. The project, originally developed internal to Microsoft, was released today under the Common Public License (a first for Microsoft). With this release developers outside Microsoft can take advantage of the same toolset being used today to create the installation packages for products like Microsoft Office, Microsoft SQL Server, and many others.
