Another new MSI authoring tool based on WiX
"War Setup" is a new Windows Installer authoring tool which uses the Windows Installer XML (WiX) toolkit as compiler to generate .msi files. War Setup supports WiX fragmants and is licensed under the Common Public License 1.0, so it's free and the source code is included.
Like I mentioned yesterday in my blog post about Indigo Rose's "Setup Factory for Windows Installer" it seems like WiX is becoming a popular foundation for MSI authoring tools.
It's also interesting that more companies and products are again entering the Windows Installer market. During the past years there was a consolidation trend with company acquisitions (Macrovision bought InstallShield and ZeroG, Altiris bought Wise and got bought by Symantec, ScriptLogic bought MaSaI Solutions) and product lines being merged or discontinued (both InstallShield and Wise combined their classic scripting products with their MSI authoring tools, ActiveInstall/InstallAnywhere.NET and a few others disappeared).
