XML sucks less than Regular Expressions, ya think?
Rock on. And it's well timed, as I was just feeling ill about my previous MSI building solution.
On Monday, April 5, 2004, as part of the Shared Source Initiative, Microsoft releases the source code for the Windows Installer XML (WiX) developer tool to SourceForge under the IBM Common Public License or CPL.
- The Windows Installer XML (WiX - pronounced "wicks") is a toolset for advanced Windows developers that builds Windows installation packages from XML source code. Overall, WiX can improve the process of how software developers release software.
- Many Microsoft product development teams use WiX to deliver their installation packages. Utilizing the 1.0 Common Language Runtime, WiX builds with Visual Studio.Net 2003 on Windows 2000, Windows XP, and will be of use with future Windows offerings.
