Learning More About WiX

Windows Installer XML (WiX) is the core technology used by Nimbus to build driver installers for both 32-bit and 64-bit environments. WiX is a freely available toolset that builds Windows installation packages from XML source code and is in widespread use today for some of the largest commercial source-code-base products, such as Microsoft Office, Visual Studio, and SQL Server.

Note Note

Nimbus currently uses WiX version 3.11.

There are a variety of resources available for WiX, including complete documentation, blogs, mailing lists, etc. These can all be located from the WiX Home Page.

An excellent WiX Tutorial is also available here.

In addition, the original team that developed WiX offers commerical-grade support, guaranteed response times on bug fixes and features as well as custom WiX development services through FireGiant.
