Description

Phil Wilson's book is an introduction to MSI technology and includes some practical tips. It's primarily using Visual Studio .NET and Orca as tools.

Description from the publisher:
Virtually every book written for software developers stops when the program is complete. Unfortunately, they leave out a critical part - creating the software that installs the application, component or service you just wrote. For a company building and shipping software, the installation might be the first time the customer has seen the product or company, and the installation experience will make a lasting impression one way or the other. An unreliable installation will affect the customer's image of the overall software and company. This book covers every aspect of using the Windows Installer - the underlying installer technology in Windows.

Author Information
Phil Wilson - Phil graduated from the University of Aston, Birmingham, England, with a BSc in Chemistry but preferred computers to test tubes and eventually worked for 15 years on developing Operating Systems for Burroughs and Unisys mainframes. Phil started programming for Windows in the early 90's and has developed in MFC, ATL COM, Visual Basic, and C#. He has been involved in installation design and technology for about eight years, and became a Microsoft "Most Valuable Professional" for Windows Installer in 2003. To get away from computers, he plays and records guitar, and enjoys
camping in the California desert. Phil works for Unisys Corporation in Mission Viejo California.
