Project Description


We take our custom actions seriously.

AppSecInc. Community MSI Extensions is a collection of MSI custom actions and WIX extensions that extend Windows installer, originally developped by Application Security Inc. for a large enterprise product, and open-sourced in late 2009. The project grew and continues growing incrementally implementing everything that wix didn't have out of the box. All custom actions and extensions are fully unit-tested.

  • Stable release: 1.2 (wix 3.0)
  • Next release: 1.3 (Beta) (wix 3.5)
