Hello xuchao,

the installer files for creating the windows installer can be found here:
http://www.virtualbox.org/browser/vbox/ ... taller/win
It seems that WIX ist used for creating the msi file.
You can find WIX here:
http://wixtoolset.org
The installer skrips are xml based and WIX is Opensource.
There are good documentation / tutorials about WIX here:
http://wix.tramontana.co.hu

Can you please tell me how you accomplished to comile with VS2010 ?
You also can post a description in
https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewforum.php?f=31
Or can you please send me a zip with the solution / project files ?
I haven't been lucky so far to successfully compile VirtualBox for VS 2010. ( I tried it to compile for more than a month. )
Thanks in advance.

Regards
Alex B.
