I developed a MSI installer using WiX 3.0, it works fine.
I wanted to know that If I deploy this MSI installer through SMS 2003 (software distribution), what modifications I will have to do in my MSI installer.

Thanks !!

Kinda hard to give you some direction when we don't know how your package looks like.
Maybe settings the ALLUSERS property?
Can't think of any special required for deploying through SMS.

When I setup a package in SMS I usually append ALLUSERS=1 in the command line, just in case it isnt set in the msi.

I have just one more thing to add to i.e. try installing your application in system context i.e. using the 'at' command. If the installation runs successfully then I am sure you would not face any problems deploying it using SMS. (This is something i always do)
