Hi Guys,

Is there a way or you can help me in converting .Exe installer to .Msi for silent deployment.?

Some EXE extract and execute an MSI.

Run the EXE and, when you get to the first screen (normally a 'Welcome' dialog), check the %TEMP% folder (note: NOT %SystemRoot%\TEMP!) and also %UserProfile%\Application Data\<Vendor_Name>\<take your pick...>. The latter is becoming common, presumably as a cache location. The MSI may have a random name. Copy this somewhere, renaming it as you go suit, if necessary.

If there's no internal MSI, you'll need to re-package. If you have neither of the main tools (Wise or InstallShield) AppDeploy has a re-packaging tool available for free.
