[wix-users] Selective installation of components

Hi Guys,

I've a similar question regarding selective chaining of MSI's. I'm chaining multiple MSI's in a bundle project and would like to install first MSI based on a result of a registry search. 
How should I achieve skipping a particular component in this case?

You can add Condition element nested under the Component.
Only if the condition evaluates to true it will install.
