    Hi


    I am trying to implement a installer which is going to perform following tasks.
    1.  Check and install .net 3.5
    2.  check and install SQL server 2008 (standard edition)
    3.  create the databases
    4.  create a virtual directory and deploy published resources
    5.  Deploy SSIS and package for the datawarehousing and to run the SSAS package.
    Right now I am using wix, to deal with some of the task, its working for me for now, but I 
    just want to know other options and better way to do this (is there any) .
    Thanks and regards

    I am trying to implement an installer, which I m gonna hand it to the end user as a product.  

    1.  Check and install .net 3.5

    2.  check and install SQL server 2008 (standard edition)

    3.  create the databases

    4.  create a virtual directory and deploy published resources

    5.  Deploy SSIS and package for the datawarehousing and to run the SSAS package.


    Right now I am using wix, to deal with some of the task, it works for me, but I am just  curious about other options and better ways to do this (is there any) .  My main intension is, I would like to distribute my product (asp.net web application) to the end user for a trial, and end user with the limited IT knowledge could install and use that web application with in a group of user.   After the end of trial period the user could ask for the activation key for further usages.


    Thanks

    Finally, I have created customized UI to get the user input for my wix installer, and wrote some custom action to show

    the dialog box.
