wixl is a WiX-like tool that builds Windows Installer (.msi) packages 
from an XML document, and tries to share the same syntax as the WiX toolset

msitools contains a set of programs to inspect and build Windows 
Installer (.msi) files. It is based on libmsi, a portable library to 
read and write .msi files.

- msibuild, a low-level tool to create MSI files
- msidiff: compares two MSI packages' contents
- msidump: dumps raw MSI tables and stream contents

These can be used, for example, to build .msi packages containing cross
