I am also the benevolent dictator for the WiX toolset. WiX contains the most powerful tools available to create Windows Installer packages with integration into Visual Studio and an extensive library of standard custom actions.
The WiX toolset was released in April 2004 as the first Open Source project from Microsoft. A vibrant developer community supports its users around the world. Join us!
Finally, from 1999 - 2013, I was a Principal Software Design Engineer at Microsoft where I worked on products including: Microsoft Office XP and 2003, Windows Server, Windows Vista, Windows Marketplace/Microsoft Store, Live Mesh and Visual Studio 2012.
