WiX Toolset

Create the Skeleton Bundle Authoring

The root element of a bundle is <Bundle>. The <Bundle> element is a child directly under the <Wix> element. Here's an example of an empty bundle:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Wix xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/wix/2006/wi">
  <Bundle>
    <!-- Contents of the bundle goes here -->
  </Bundle>
</Wix>

In this example, you will be adding the following elements to the <Bundle> element:

As a start, add the two most common elements inside a <Bundle> :

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Wix xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/wix/2006/wi">
  <Bundle>
    <BootstrapperApplicationRef />
    <Chain>
    </Chain>
  </Bundle>
</Wix>

The <BootstrapperApplicationRef> element will eventually point to the standard BootstrapperApplication provided by the WiX toolset and the <Chain> element will eventually contain the ordered list of packages that make up the bundle.

Now that you have the skeleton authoring of a Bundle, you can move on to adding information for the <BootstrapperApplicationRef> element. See Author the BootstrapperApplication for a Bundle.
