WIX Editor ??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User214117797 posted

    I have just gotten aboard a new project where they use VS2005 Team Suite, and for the build process that use Team Builds with WIX to create their MSI setup projects.

    Now this is all good and the end result is great, however, I had to create the first WIX project and boy, was it a long tedious process!

    There is no GUI editor or wizard, but rather handcrafted XML which was a beast.

    This XML contained things like variables, xpath for config changes, dialogs, external resources etc Designing a dialog required me to manually input x y coordinates and there was no preview!

    So here lies in the question, any one know of a visual GUI plug in that can make life easier with creating/maintaining WIX projects?

    If you are looking for GUI editor for WiX you might want to have a look at SharpSetup - it allows you to create installer dialogs using Visual Studio 2008/2010 dialog/control designer.
