    Creating MSI Files/Projects

    Hello all.

    I have been looking into what program / add-on to use in order to create MSI projects. I have software written in C++ in VS2010. So far I like what I see from WiX but have alse seen PowerShell and Install Shield. Does anyone know of any other addons or programs to use to create MSI files/projects? Thanks for any help in advance.

    Can you start by summarising what you find to be inadequate with the installers you have already found?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I don't necessarily find anything inadequate. I like WiX. But since this is for work, I need to show that I looked around at other options. I just want to make sure there aren't any other significant choices that I am missing.

    I found a long list using google.
