A couple more Windows Installer links I found
Hey all, I'm sure most of you have already seen these but just in case, here are a couple more links that I found related to Windows Installer on various Microsoft websites:
- Windows Installer FAQ - http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/community/centers/management/msi_faq.mspx
- Windows Installer resources - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;282477
I also borrowed a copy of a book called Administrator's Introduction to Application Repackaging and Software Deployment using Windows Installer from a guy on my former team here at Microsoft (the link is not necessarily an endorsement of Amazon.com, just what I usually use to send info about books electronically). I'm planning on taking a look at this book over the weekend. If anyone has gone through any of this book already, I'd like to hear what you think.
I'm also thinking of a couple topics for future blog entries as I get time to type them out - thoughts on application repackaging in general, and features that should exist in Windows Installer but don't.
