comment Find GUID of MSI Package
Just for the record: How can I find the product GUID of an installed MSI setup? (provided the setup is installed on the machine itself - if not get hold of Orca from the Windows SDK or another packaging tool).

There seems to be a new capture tool called Scalable Smart Packager CE. I have not tested this tool thoroughly. Scalable, Vendor link.

comment How to create an MSI to install and register an ActiveX Control?
Second tutorial link is broken. Perhaps try CodeProject, a quick introduction to MSI with Wix. Or try this stackoverflow overview.
