    Package up software

    Does anybody know of/use any software out there which packages up multiple software titles into one exe? Instead of installing several pieces of software, just create one .exe or .msi that will install the lot?

    Not quite the same, but you could use Ketarin or InstallPad to achieve a similar end result.

    You could just repackage using WinInstallLE or any packaging software. All it is doing is capturing the changes on the hard drive so it would work. Is there any reason for doing this? Seems like it would work against you in the long run as updating one peice of software would mean updating the entire package just for the one title.

    Depending on what you want to install theres also Ninite - Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once . also File Hippo has an updater for most of the freeware you can download from their site VLC, CCLeaner, Defraggler etc

    Alternatively, depending on your package manager you could call a batch script which runs each of a set of installers silently?

    You could look into cameyo which will create you a virtualised application.

    If you do the first capture, install all the programs you want and then do the second capture it will create you an exe containing them all virtualised.
