The 3rd line is confusing but reading between the lines, I *think* your question is, does anyone know of a freeware tool which will create an executable (an EXE) that will run your list of commands. I've re-phrased the question because the majority of the software you mention is already in MSI format.

To answer the re-phrased question, I don't know of anything off the top of my head but I know there are a few tools which convert batch/command files to EXEs and others which convert VB Scripts to EXEs. A Google search will turn those up.

You could try Microsoft's IExpress which ships with the Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK).

Originally intended for IE deployments, it can nonetheless be used in a situation where you need to unpack a set of files (in your case redistributables and MSI's) and then run a command after unpacking - this can be a CMD file in which you could place all the necessary commands to install the various elements of your package.

Take a look at


Unrelated to your query, but worth pointing out to readers of this thread is the ability of IExpress to combine with DPInst to create standalone executables that install device drivers.

Ok let me make question simple,

My requirement is to create a msi or any package which will inturn invokes other packages(i.e., i need to install one package after another in a serial fashion, incase of roll back all the installed packages has to roll back.)

It is a windows application, that's why i need to create a single package that will act as a cover arround all the other packages.

Ok, so go with the BAT/CMD or VBS compilers. For those packages which aren't already in MSI format, I believe I listed some here on the forum, so a search for 'freeware' against my ID VBScab using the 'Search' link at the top of this page should turn something up. Failing that, a Google search for "windows installer" +freeware will turn some up.
