A practical guide, this book provides step-by-step instructions for building your installer, showcasing real-world examples throughout. Its purpose is to get the professional developer building installers in no time without getting bogged down in theory. Numerous references to additional resources are provided so that curious readers can supplement the knowledge they gain here with additional details. If you are a developer and want to create installers for software targeting the Windows platform, then this book is for you. You'll be using a lot of XML so that you get accustomed to the basics of writing well-formed documents, using XML namespaces and the dos and don'ts of structuring elements and attributes. You should know your way around Visual Studio, at least enough to compile projects, add project references, and tweak project properties. No prior knowledge of Windows Installer or WiX is assumed.
