Hi everyone,
My project:
As a part of my project i have to automate the various processes taking place in the SDLC , I have til now been succesfully able to automate the following processes.

1)Build Process(MSBuild)
2)Coverage Testing (Ncover)
3)QTP Testing (Quick Test Professional)

Packaging Problem:
I should now automate the deployment process, the Wise Installer is the installer that is used . I m now able to automate the creation of the "msi" file by running a batch file like this.

"path\WFWI.EXE" "path\project file" /c /o "path\output file" /s

But this requires the "wsi" file as input and the creation of this is being done manually , i designed an User Interface where the user has options of selecting the 'features','sql server scripts','registry','services' etc for the application and now have been tryin to find ways of programatically creating a 'wsi' file based on those inputs ,the closest i got to it is the following link :

I m using C# to develop my project , can anyone provide inputs as to how i can proceed with the "wsi" creation .

There will be a help file installed with WPS which details [cough...] the Wise Automation Object model. That is about as much information as you're likely to find :(

I should check out WiX instead of Wise for the automation

it is handy to use WIX in your case. There are couple of articles about WIX and MSBuild integration
