What tools/scripting languages do you use?
How do you integrate with the application's build automation, if any?
How do you interact with developers on your team who "own" third-party controls?
What is the format of the install build's output? Zip? CD?
Do you use Automation Interfaces, like the MSI or InstallShield Com objects?
Is there any QA/Unit Testing involved in your automation?
There's been a lot of writing recently about application build processes, but not a lot that I can find about install build processes. It seems to me they're two different issues with very different challenges.
