Hello!
There's a Windows Service written in C#. Inside its solution, there's a 'Microsoft Visual Studio Installer Project"
It works well apart from one fact. To parametrize the service I need to change a line of XML file (specify a path to special file)
The question is—how to create a Setup Wizard program (utility, extension, something else) that would allow adding to Setup Wizard a step to just browse this path? Once a path is specified, Wizard should change target .XML file accordingly

I've not played with VS installer projects in years. Last time was when it was just a wrapper around InstallShield. If the newer projects are truly Wix projects as has been the long term goals of DevDiv, then see this SO question:
