We're starting to develop "Basic MSI" project with InstallShield 11 for product that will be installed on Windows 2003 server. I would like to purchase a book that will help me in that task.
Now, there is a book released by InstallShield Press named "Learning MSI Projects using InstallShield® 11". I highly suspect that it is of beginning level and will just repeat help topics of InstallShield itself. Also it have only 320 pages filled with lot of screenshots of various InstallShield Developer dialogs. $175 USD is too much for that thing.
So, I'm looking for your advice for a Windows MSI installer book that will help me as novice and will serve me later, as more advanced developer.
So far I've found following books that looks nice:
- "The Definitive Guide to Windows Installer" by Phil Wilson
- "Practical Windows Installer Solutions for Building InstallShield Setup Applications" by Bob Baker
- "Getting Started with InstallShield Developer and Windows Installer Setups" by Bob Baker
What do you think of above books ? Do you know some other titles ?
