This sample demonstrates using a domain-specific language (DSL) written in the code name "M" language to simplify the process of creating Windows Installer (MSI) packages using the Windows Installer XML Language, known as Wix ("wicks"). Wix itself is a free software toolset from Microsoft that builds MSIs from an XML document. For details on Wix, see http://sourceforge.net/projects/wix/.

One of the difficulties in working with Wix is authoring the necessary XML. This sample simplifies the process by defining a DSL from which the XML can be generated. This sample includes an "M" language for that DSL as well as a compiler that will generate the XML.
