[wix-users] Register WMI Provided (mofcomp)

I wrote a custom WMI provider about 5 years ago. If memory serves you have to install the DLL and MOF,  register the DLL (regsvr32 is bad.. use Heat to extract the COM meta data from the DLL )  and compile the MOF.

If you know how to do this all by hand I could help translate to WiX.

Hi wix-users,

The installer for my current project requires a WMI provider registration step, I've browsed through the internet hoping someone had already solved this using Wix Toolse, but unfortunately found nothing.
Is anyone familiar with resources that can help me accomplish this task?.
This operation is currently performed by our InstallShield project by copying the mofs to SUPPORTDIR and then running a mofcomp batchfile.

Any help on this regard will be most appreciated!
