I did not know about this utility More precisely, probably I  about it knew (any more I do not remember), but probably it something was not pleasant to me.  not the reader.  - the writer - - From key things of mine : - at me GUID components are saved at regeneration WXI. - If the file is deleted, it (and it guid) in a database (xml-file) all the same remains, but already with exists = "0". If heat.exe it is all is able, I to cry in beer

Accordingly, too are saved, while you will not rename or will not move a file (algorithm RFC 4122 is used, "namespace guid") heat.exe it is able (heat.exe-ag)

Something such I recall And if I have to generate different MSI-files (x86/x64) as me to generate for them different GUID for the same file set? When I investigated in MSI/WIX, found the recommendation to form different GUID for such cases. Therefore also stirred up the .

To set "initial" guid (namespace guid), is ComponentGuidGenerationSeed For x86/x64 for example: <? if $ (var. Platform) =x64?> <? define Seed = "{E17B7A69-05D8-4503-BC0A-389601306F69}"?> <? else?> <? define Seed = "{826F2F59-2F0B-442F-987C-F858EC5B08FD}"?> <? endif?>..... <Directory Id = "INSTALLFOLDER" Name = "Foo" ComponentGuidGenerationSeed = "$ (var. Seed)"> <Component Id = "ProductComponent"> <File Name = "File.exe"> </File> </Component> </Directory>
