If you have read through our recent blog posts, you probably noticed a few ones focusing on WiX. And that was not an accidental choice of topic, we were trying to see how the land lies in that direction :) Well, now I am ready to unveil the secret and announce the upcoming release of a new product – VDProj to WiX Converter. Beta 1 is already available!
This extension for Visual Studio 2012, 2010, 2008 and 2005 lets you convert your existing vdproj setups to WiX in a click. That’s it! Nothing more to say :) If you want more details, see a video intro by Ty and a review by Pieter.
How to try it?
You can give it a try right now – simply download and install an evaluation version, open your existing solution in Visual Studio and choose “Convert to WiX project”… and voila! :)
How to get it?
When designing this product, we were thinking about your projects based on Add-in Express for Office and .net in the first place. And… we decided to give it for free to our Premium subscribers. So, if you are a happy holder of a premium license, check your inbox for the license info :)
All other Add-in Express customers can get the VDProj to WiX Converter for 50% off the regular price during beta testing. Your coupon code has been emailed to you, if you did not receive it, just let us know. Your license key will work for the current Beta 1 as well as for subsequent betas and the release version and your maintenance subscription starts anew on the release date.
If you have any comments and suggestions about the features or encounter a problem with the beta, don’t hesitate to let us know. Your feedback is most welcome and invited!
I hope to hear from you soon!
