    Package Creator

    I've been using the free version of WinInstall LE to create MSI packages for Active Directory deployment for a while.

    It works, but has its limitations so I'm looking to buy a proper version - does anyone have any advice/comments on the best one available for a reasonable cost?

    We're on a Windows vanilla network - no RM/CC stuff!

    I use Wise Package Studio and find it much more useful than Wininstall LE and MaSaI (before it was acquired by script logic).

    As for the cost, I guess it depends how you define reasonable, but it certainly isn't cheap.

    tosh: do you just use the free version or did you purchase it?

    If you purchased it which one did you go for and how easy was it to purchase for the school?

    Thanks,

    Ben

    Free Windows Installer - MSI Installer Tool

    I checked the Free Windows Installer - MSI Installer Tool and it looks like a tool for developers, doesn't look as you can create a snap shot before and after.
    There is a list of software on appdeploy.com but I would also like someone to recommand one, beside wise that cost something like 3000.

    Regards

    Free Windows Installer - MSI Installer Tool does indeed offer a snap shot function.
