    Creating an msi

    Hi

    I want to deploy some apps which only have exe files available.

    What/how do people make msis for these types of files?

    Another one for WinstallLE i use this all the time. Failing that some .exe's have silent installs so i just create .bat files for them and set them to run on startup script through GPO

    I find this one slightly easier to use than WinstallLE

    I use Prism Pack

    It creates its own package (.pwc). The install can then be managed with its own client software, or it can convert it to .msi.

    I use WinInstall LE and AppDeploy.com Repackager (which is now partnered with KACE).

    I will give advanced installer a try but really the other two work great. I used to like WinInstall LE alot but over the last week the simplified interface of AppDeploy.com Repackager has made it very simple.

    AppDeploy.com - The Application Deployment Information Center has great ways to silently install exe's. some are easier than creating msi's
