Plenty more info on http://wix.sourceforge.net/
It's one of those things that once the command ines are written anyone can just press the button... it's a great method.

I went through the document about wix and i am really impressed.
I am having few concerns..
I need to use wix since there is no (seems) option to build patch from commandlin in installshield. Now while creating wix how to mention path of the binaries which i want to be included in the patch. As we include the path for the binaries in path variable how to mention path for the binaries in wix (xml) file. Need i presume that all the binaries will be in the same path as that of wix file. Then i have trouble !! Because the bianries are located in different drives and different folders (as obious) in the build machine. The only work around is to copy these binaries to location where my wix(xml)file is.
or if it possible to mention the path varible or mention the path of the binaries to be included while creating patch in wix file.

Here is the reply I rceived from InstallShield regarding this. I ended up using the Visual Studio plugin and created a VS Solution file for my patch. I then was able to build the patch as a VS project.
"I believe that it is not not possible to build a patch via either the standalone build or the automation interface ( from command line). This is documented here:
