I am a long time ready of these forums, and wanted to call on the knowledge of the community one more time.

I started repackaging 2 years ago. After repackaging 20+ installations have a pretty good understanding of how .msi's work but I would like to have a more advanced understanding of the inner workings of the .msi model.

I am looking for a book that will give me a more advanced understanding of .msi's. Specifically Wise for Windows Installer but a generic book on the .msi model would be great.

I searched the forum, and didn't find a similar thread. If this has already been covered i apologize.

There is a list over here: http://www.installsite.org/pages/en/msi/books.htm

I've read the realtime publishers ones and they are good for getting your feet wet but I am not sure what I would recomend for a really in depth book. You might have to look at the titles written for application developers rather than administrators.
