Re: [tycho-user] Create MSI product installer
When switching to MSI, be aware that you can no longer install the same product multiple times on a machine. This has been a killer for our "copy-paste" Eclipse based installation, so we use NSIS quite happily.

In the past NSIS did not create MSI files, WIX does. So if you require an MSI, instead of a "setup.exe" I would suggest having a look at it.
