[wix-users] Converting NSIS to WIX

Good day everyone. This is my first post to the list. I started researching
WIX a few days ago and to say the least, I'm as green as they come in
reference to it. I have a complex program which has a working installer
built with NSIS. I did not write the NSIS installer or the program which it
installs. The installer was written about 10 years ago by a former
co-worker. My goal is to completely re-write the installer from the ground
up using WIX. I need to accomplish this fairly quickly, but looking at the
WIX tutorials and documentation, I don't believe this is going to be a quick
process. My question is. is there any way to convert an NSIS script to WIX
format? If not, is there anyone out there who is willing to help me at least
plan out the project? There are many variables that come into play with my
program. For example, my program can run with several mail server platforms.
I need the installer to give choices upon launch so that the person
installing it can choose which mail server they have running etc. Thanks in
advance for your guidance.
