I am planning to use WIX to make the install setup of an application. However I do not know if this is a good choice or not. Do you have any feedback with this tool?
Thanks in advance!

Wix is nice, but there's a steep learning curve. It's basically a wrapper around the underlying MSI foundation, so if you need to do anything complex you'll need to learn that too.
That being said, I've done quite a bit of stuff with Wix in the last few months. I'm particularly glad that the Wix file is XML, as it made it very easy to slice, dice, and generate Wix files automatically via script or program.
