Default Windows Installer vs VB6 Installer


All,

I've gotten pretty good at modifying the VB6 installer to customize my VB6 Windows app installations to do anything I want. E.g. You get to go right into the VB code and do stuff (like create directories, copy/move files, look for and install ODBC DSN's, etc.).

However, I seem to have a problem doing the same thing with the VS 2005 Windows installer to install my VS 2005 windows applications. It doesn't seem to be as 'open source' as the VB6 installer; therefore, I don't know how to get the VS 2005 Windows installer to do many of the things I want it to do.

Can someone point me towards decent web sites that describe how to customize VS 2005 Window app installation?

I ordered "The Definitive Guide to Windows Installer (Expert's Voice in Net)" by Phil Wilson, but would like to find something today or tomorrow on the web that can point me in the right direction.

Thanx!
