|Deployment Tools Foundation is a rich set of .NET class libraries and related resources that together bring the Windows deployment platform technologies into the .NET world. It is designed to greatly simplify deployment-related development tasks while still exposing the complete functionality of the underlying technology.|
DTF is an open source project which is being developed by Microsoft employee Jason Ginchereau. It is part of the Windows Installer XML (WiX) project but can be used with other indows Installer authoring tools, too.
