Create an MSI file for your Electron app on Windows using Electron Forge.

The WiX MSI target builds .msi files, which are "traditional" Windows installer files. Please note we recommend using the Squirrel.Windows target over using this one. These MSI files are a worse user experience for installation but sometimes it is necessary to build MSI files to appease large scale enterprise companies with internal application distribution policies. For more info, check out "Should I use WiX MSI?".

You can only build the WiX MSI target on machines with light and candle installed from the WiX toolkit.

Configuration options are documented in MakerWixConfig.
