Description

Doomsday's Windows installer is currently based on Inno Setup. However, WiX Toolset would enable a better installer with modularization and integration with Windows' native installation system.

There is an old work branch for this (replacing-innosetup-with-wixtoolset).

cmake-build can package a WiX installer. The only thing missing is to fine-tune it and tweak the metadata and appearance of the installer.
