Make changes to existing Windows Installer XML (Wix) project

Budget $30 - $250 USD
Bids 5
Average Bid $134

I have an existing Windows Installer XML (Wix) project which runs fine in Visual Studio 2010. The Wix project was created one year ago. Small changes are needed now. This will be a simple project if you are a WIX expert.

Details:
The Wix project produces 2 files:
- an EXE file which installs on the client PC three prerequisites, which are all Microsoft free updates;
- a MSI file which installs on the client PC our own app; the output MSI file has 2 versions, one for 32-bit and the another for 64-bit PCs.

The major changes include
- Update the version of the prerequisites;
- The existing Wix installed on client PC a specific version of Microsoft free updates. Now nothing should be done if newer versions exist;
- The new Wix project will only need to produce MSI file for 64-bit PC. The exe and dll files for generating the MSI are changed.

Requirements include:
- The installer must visually look appealing;
- The installer itself must be able to run on 64bit PCs with Windows 7 and above;

Resources to be provided:
-- All necessary files and links will be provided.
.
Deliverables:
-- Updated Wix project that runs as a solution in Visual Studio 2010/.NET 4.
-- Any other necessary documentation, e.g. make it easy for us to make further small changes.

Slimbyte is the kind of worker that makes me keep coming back to using RAC / vWorker. I have had several projects done for me on this site in different areas. The reasons I rate Slimbyte at 10 is: 1) Did a good job in the requirements gathering stage. 2) Came up with good suggestions to make the end result better. 3) Communicated well and updated me whilst he did the work. 4) Provided betas with a good level of instructions for me to test 5) Accepted the bug-list (which was very minimal) and came back quickly with new versions. 6) Was very patient awaiting my further testing results as I had other work on that kept me away from the project. 7) Was reasonable in adding features that were not part of the original spec. 8) Friendly and personable and chatted with me "live" on IM to field my questions. I'm very happy with the work SlimByte has provided and intend to use him again for the next stage of the project. I would recommend you use Slimbyte, but please only after he's finished the next stage of my project ;) Regards, John
