With Windows Installer XML (WiX) toolset, you can create .msi packages.
The program light.exe creates these packages.

Light.exe succeeds both when run with wine's builtin msi.dll and with a native
msi.dll. However, the msi package produced with the builtin msi.dll does not
install on MS Windows (XP), while the one built with the native msi.dll does.

Apparently, light.exe fails without complaining, which makes it difficult to
pinpoint the problem. Nonetheless, looking at the produced .msi packages it
seems that there is something wrong with the Summary information.

I have attached a script to reproduce the problem.

Note, the storage warnings that light.exe produces can be get rid off by using
a native ole32.dll, but that does not appear to affect this bug.
