Project Description

I am looking for a skeleton project that comprises a basic MSI installer that is written in C/C++. This must use Windows API and not tools like InstallShield and Wise.

That basic installer should do the following:

- create a system restore point before installation

- create all required Registry key per Windows Installer

- register the installation using a unique product code

- create an installation directory

- create a Start -> "All Programs" application folder containing a shortcut to launch an exe

- create a desktop shortcut icon

- create and Add/Remove Programs entry so the program can be uninstalled

This should be based on Windows Installer (MSI) technology and follow strict guidelines as per Microsoft.
