WIX Tips


Since I have been playing a lot with MSI installers latelly and I'd like to share two tips with those authoring Windows Installers with WIX:
  • You can get a lot of information by running your installation package through msiexec:

    msiexec /i CustomAction.msi /lvx log.txt

    The command above just runs CustomAction.msi logging everything including the kitchen sink :)

  • You can use 7Zip to open msi files (and ofcourse, extract content from it)
Happing programming ;)
