SMOKE.EXE

This is a command line tool program, not sure if you can still find it. I have been told: I have found a newer version of the SMOKE.EXE validator as a part of the VIX 3.0 (beta) Suite (Windows Installer XML v3) at http://wix.sourceforge.net/downloadv3.html.

Still its the only command line alternative to the "MSIVAL2" tool.
