I have to deploy Microsoft visual C++ 2010 & 2012 Redistribute packages as part of a prerequisite for another program I have.  My problem is that both C++ programs are .exe and not .msi installers.  Are there msi packages available or what is the best practice to deploy these two exe files?

you can normally extract them with either a /c or /extract.
/C was for the 'older ones' but for some unknown reason some of the newer ones use it. But its one or the other. Then you have the MSI's that you can deploy silently.

As is pretty general with all EXE installers from Microsoft, running the exe from the command line with /? as the argument will give you a dialogue box displaying the available switches to use with the EXE.
