Hi All,

Is there anyway i can convert wise package (.exe ) into a wise (.msi) or using any other tools. I have already try to do capture & install mode but some of the components were missing in the created msi. So i was wondering , why can't i use vendors (.exe) packages by wise . Any ideas or suggestions !!!!!! thanks in advance

regarding the legacy setup conversion, I've either gotten garbage from it, or nothing at all. Wise either needs to "wise up" and improve this tool, or just drop it. Legacy EXEs are going away.

Your best bet is to get your hands on the source files if you can, and just drop them into a new MSI. some EXE files will expand for you.
