Comparing between VS Setup& Deployment and WiX

Dear all,

I have to develop an Installer for our package. Now we are difficult to decide to select VS Setup& Deployment (VS Installer) or WiX to develop.
I just heard that VS Installer will not be supported by MS since 2010 version, but it is more easy for customize the Installer.

Have anyone who has experience in both VS Installer and WiX can give me an advice or give us the issue list or limitation list of these framework (VS Installer and WiX)?

Many thanks for your help.

Are you thinking of using VS2011? it still works in VS2010. We use installshield here though.

Yes, it is VS2011.
We have to use VS Installer or WiX, not InstallShield.
Pls help if you have any idea.
