[wix-users] Change the name of msi after build

I change the name of the MSI using the MsiPackge/@Name attribute (as it is being built, and not as you asked for an after-build step).

      <MsiPackage Id='SomeID_de-DE'
                  Name='SomeFolder\MyMsi_de-DE.msi' >

Subject: [wix-users] Change the name of msi after build

I have made a Powershell script that harvests the components and then build the wix solution through MSBUILD. Is there any way on how to change the name of msi after building the solution. One way I found out is through afterbuild events. But can anyone guide me how?
