Whats a good book to get to learn more about MSI's and Installscript? I've been creating installs for about 8 months now and have had no training on it at all and now the requirements for the install are starting to step over my general knowledge. I'm using X and would like to know which book to pickup that will be comprehensive and include the new stuff in X.

So if you know of a good book, please let me know.

The best single book for MSI and InstallScript information is probably Getting Started with InstallShield Developer and Windows Installer Setups (http://www.installshield.com/ispress/windows-installer-setup/default.asp).

The manuals we use in the training courses have newer information (and are more focused toward a particular project type in InstallShield X), but that book has a good survey of both MSI and InstallScript.
