I have made a simple install with VS.net 2003.And now I need insert a dialog which
my customer can select which feature to install,just like what office setup has done.
I get Orca ,but I can only find a lot of Tables in it. I find Orca setup has the dialog,
too.I want to let my customers can maintain software after they have installed it.What
I plan to do is that let users maintain the software in Add/Remove Panel,when they select
update the software.I think I need a dialog like the maintenanceTypeDlg dialog in Orca
setup .I want to know how can I make all about these with Orca?
I am a beginner with Windows Installer.I have read the windows installer SDK document for several weeks and do what the sample tell me to do.But I yet can't start my work.The Orca
is too complex for me to use. I don't think it is a good way to open the .MSI and male every table by hand.Is there any tool which is free and easy to do all of these?
Need your help.

I think Visual Studio has a dialog with check boxes. Maybe you can use this.

Creating a dialog by filling in the tables in Orca is extremely tedious. You may want to buy a full featured MSI authoring tool instead which includes such a dialog and maybe even has a dialog editor.
