    Are you sure it has to be a GUID? I'm not entirely sure, but I think I saw installers that just used filenames as their IDs (it was especially the case for Microsoft products, platform sdks, at least all, for example). Could you just replace special characters with '_' and use that as an ID?
    • Actually, you are probably right about the files directly.

      Unfortunately, WiX also has the concept of a "component" which is very high resolution. In the context of a typical CPAN install, every module in the dependency chain would need to be a component.
