I am New to Windows installer XML(WIX),i want to move from traditional Visual studio Installer set up to WIX.
In this process,i have to create CustomActions and LanchConditions in the Setup as like the Visual studio installer setup(which were displayed when we Rightclick on setup project and View then Lanuch Condition,Register ....) in WIX.
Can you please tell me the process to Create those in Wix.

WiX has tools to convert an MSI into the WiX installer file (xml),[^] Using this tool the Wix file will be created. Just make the changes in the file according to your requirements.

Thank you for your Answer..

I am working with windows project , and i have different third party controls and their Corresponding dll's , and one Main project is linked with other C#library library projects as like 3 tier architecture.
how can i add these dll's as refernce and i also have to get all those dll's in the bin folder of the setup(To send to setup with dll's to client system) as like original MS installer setup,carries all dll's to bin folder.
i have used heat.exe to reference the some folders, it's working fine to refer but some of the dll's in GAC and Same Solution Project dll also have to get the reference how can i get those references (getting all the Dll's of GAC using heat is Work load and in MS installer setup project we reference the Dll using right click and add reference option). I tried to google so many site's but i didn't find any usefull answer.

Please give different options(solutions) with clear idea.
Thank you..
