Another 'something' is NSIS (Nullsoft) which has been picked up by 
others and is over at sourceforge.
I used to use it a long time ago but had to give it up for Inno Setup 
because it was dropped by the original author.
A nice thing about it is the use and availability of plugins to do a lot 
of things even Inno cannot do. It's probably not as sharp a learning 
curve as WIX. Of course, it would mean starting from scratch.

I will take inventory on this Inno Setup scripts and see what is left to 
do here in a day or two.
