December 2012 | Open Source

Packt Publishing is pleased to announce WiX 3.6: A Developer's Guide to Windows Installer XML, a new book and ebook that promises a friendly welcome into the world of Windows Installer. Written by Nick Ramirez, this book will bring the reader up to speed on all of the major features of WiX, including the new bootstrapper engine, Burn.

WiX is an XML markup, distributed with an open-source compiler and linker, used to produce a Windows Installer package. It supports a command-line environment that developers may integrate into their build processes to build MSI and MSM setup packages.

WiX 3.6: A Developer's Guide to Windows Installer XML provides a richer understanding of the underlying Windows Installer technology. It will also help readers gain an understanding of the order in which events happen during an install and how to hook into this process.

Using this book, readers will learn how WiX builds and links their files into the final MSI package and how to fine tune this process. Furthermore, it will also help readers to prevent users from installing their software on unsupported operating systems and introduce other prerequisite checks.

Written in a step-by-step tutorial format, this book is for developers who want to create installers for software targeting the Windows platform. The book is out now and available from Packt in print and popular eBook formats. To read more about it and download a sample chapter, please visit the Packt web-page.
