MSI Help

I have written quite a few InstallScript projects. I've began trying to write some InstallScript MSI projects since they offer some features that InstallScript does not (i.e. installing windows services). I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of some good help on the makeup of InstallScript MSI projects - how the operate, order of events, CA's vs. Installscript, etc...


Thank you

If you're just looking to install Windows Services, check out the ServiceAddService and related InstallScript APIs. Changing project types to InstallScript MSI shouldn't be undertaken lightly. The core becomes driven by Windows Installer, so you then have to play by all of Windows Installer's rules.
