Summary: Better AppSearch Documentation

Initial Comment:
There have been several excellent AppSearch questions
lately which took a long time to figure out.  In the
interest of saving this time in the future, I'd like to
propose adding some common AppSearch examples to
wix.chm.  Anyone thats interested in helping out, can
just add their favorite AppSearch authoring to this
feature request (and please explain what it does in as
much detail as possible).

Search for a file and create a property MYFOLDER holding the
file's path (as seen at
<http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/msi/setup/searching_for_a_file_and_creating_a_property_holding_the_file_s_path.asp>):

<Property Id="MYFOLDER">
  <DirectorySearch Id="AppFile">
      <DirectorySearch Id="AppFolder" />
  </DirectorySearch>
</Property>

<Property Id="FAKE">
  <FileSearch Id="AppFile" Name="MyApp.exe"/>
</Property>

Assign a Registry value or Directory to a property
SOME_FOLDER (if the registry key is found, the search is
stopped without looking for a directory):
<Property Id="SOME_FOLDER">
  <RegistrySearch Id="SomeFolder" Root="HKLM"
Key="SOFTWARE\COMPANY\APPLICATION" Name="Folder"
Type="directory">
    <DirectorySearch Id="SomeFolder" Path="SomeFolder"
Depth="2" />
  </RegistrySearch>
</Property>
