Help Provided WiX Tutorial and Windows Installer but help like user guide was not provided on the WiXEdit tool itself. I would like to tell you the reason why I am asking the user manual or tutorial. I am a legacy VB 6.0 and VBA programmer. I do not know XML and time will not permit me to XML but as of now I need to create MSI packages for my legacy systems. So I am expecting help to use the tool to build MSI without knowing WiX and XML.

    Documentation is indeed important to have.

    It is impossible to create advanced installers without the knowledge of WiX. I you're happy with the installers the wizard creates, then fine. Otherwise I suggest you start learning WiX, and unfortunately this includes XML basics.
