So having a service running all the time just to install programs, and
having to not be able to uninstall a program cleanly if the MSI file has
been moved/deleted (or if the MSI file that was copied into some obscure
place in the %SYSTEMROOT% path) or due to some other sort of failure,
provides an error, is clean is it? Not to mention it will be impossible to
uninstall in Safe Mode (should it be necessary) since MSIEXEC refuses to
run under Safe Mode these days.
Never tried WiX before, but the problem wouldn't be WiX - it would be
MSIEXEC and the way it works.
