Video: Create WiX setup projects using familiar Visual Studio designers
Visual Studio 2013 is a wonderful code editor. I’m a fan of it (monochrome icons and all). However, I have not adopted as quickly as I thought due to the lack of support for setup projects. This was big whole, thus many of us, developers, have turned to WiX.
WiX, of course, is a different animal than VS setup projects. You might even say it’s a true developer’s tool because it lacks some key visual designers. You must configure everything the hard way… pain must be involved!
But we disagree and think a developer’s time is best spent writing the code that implements their business requirements. Therefore, we created the Designer for Visual Studio WiX Setup Projects.
The WiX Designer provides you with a set of familiar Visual Studio designers to configure the File System, Registry, setup user interface, launch conditions, and more. This short video will show just how cool the WiX Designer is.
