Community MSI Extensions


We take our custom actions seriously.

AppSecInc. Community MSI Extensions is a collection of MSI custom actions and WIX extensions that extend Windows installer, originally developped by Application Security Inc. for a large Enterprise product, and open-sourced in 2009. The project grew and continues growing incrementally implementing everything that wix didn't have out of the box. All custom actions and extensions are fully unit-tested.



Wix Extensions

  • System Tools: deals with copying, moving, deleting files out of sequence, compare versions, execute commands, process template files, copy registry keys, etc.
  • Java Tools: deals with jar and unjar.
  • Data Sources: deals with generic ODBC and specific MSAccess and MSSQL databases, SQL files, etc. See this post for a primer.
  • User Privileges: deals with local users and groups.
  • Common UI Wix Extension: dialogs for installing Windows services and databases with credentials.

Immediate Custom Actions

  • Manipulating files, folders, registry, services.
  • String template and regex processing.
  • Active Directory functions.
  • ODBC and DMO functions.
  • Local users, groups, security and privileges.
  • Encryption, decryption, signing.

Additional Features
