Here, we will build a simple installer which will install a very simple application which consists of an executable, a DLL Library and a user manual. These files will be copied to a specific directory and 2 shortcuts would appear, one in usual place in the Start Menu and other icon shortcut on the Desktop.
Let’s start by following these steps:
a. Writing a simple .wxs xml installer source code .
b. Compiling the source code
c. Building the MSI.
