I just installed the latest wix, and I have now a program shortcut to the documentation.
The Getting Started section of the tutorial (documentation ) says to invoke candle like so:
C:\test> candle product.wxs
That is really wrong, AFAICT.
1) I don't have any such directory, and the wix install didn't install any such directory.
2) Candle isn't in my path, so I think that wouldn't work even if I had such a directory. (At least, invoking a command shell and trying to invoke candle gives me a file not found error.)
3) There are only two installed shortcuts on the program menu, and neither seems to contain path information, and I do not seem to have any C:\Program Files\Wix subdirectory.
4) Looking in Control Panel/Add & Remove programs, I don't see wix listed.
I think the tutorial needs to explain to the newbie where to find candle.
