I hope this is not off topic as Package Development is my field. But i was hoping someone could enlighten me what books i should go for regarding Package Development using WPS and Windows Installer 3-3.1

None of the books i've looked at, including on this site confirms being based on Windows Installer 3 - I know its new, but still ...
Can anyone recommend any in-depth books on Package Development in WPS? or maybe some other training material?

I have worked with Wise for aprox. 4 years in a lot of different environments, mainly Wise for Windows Installer, though the principles of packaging remains, Wise Package Studio is my main focus.

Thanks in advance, and sorry if i've replaced my post !

There are deadfully few books on the subject. None for v3 that I'm aware of. (Maybe we should write one? [;)]) Your best bet is MSDN. Everything here & below. http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/msi/setup/windows_installer_guide.asp

Also search Wise & InstallShield for some helpful documents. Some are rather large.

I agree, there are hardly any books on the subject...

The two most helpful places that I have found answers to problems and increased my knowledge of packaging (which is still quite limited) are MSDN and AppDeploy (sorry if this sounds sucky but I think this is a great website!).
