Forget how to use the tools for now since, unless you know the fundamentals of Windows Installer, you will struggle with anything other than basic packaging.

Find the downloadable version of Phil Wilson's The Definitive Guide To Windows Installer. Supplement it with another, similarly named reference, The Definitive Guide to Windows Installer Technology (Sean Daily,
Realtimepublishers.com). Read and digest these FIRST!! Then, using any tool is just a matter of learning its UI.

EDIT:
You know, of course, that the Wise product line is now dead, right? I wouldn't waste much time learning it.

Don't know why 'x' happened? Want to know why 'y' happened? Use ProcMon and it will tell you.
Think about using http://www.google.com before posting.
