I need to create a msi package of a software which is "installed" by copying files from network share to local fodler and creating shortcuts. So it has no installer at all. I´ve done similar stuff with Adminstudio monitoring process and it worked fine. I don´t use Adminstudio anymore, so I need to do the same trick with Repackages. The problem is, that repackager requires .exe or installer at the start which I don´t have. Is there any way to over ride this?

I believe that it just needs an executable to run, any executable.

Get it to launch notepad.exe, copy your files and create your shortcuts and then close notepad.

Remember to remove any reference to notepad in your package - I think it'll take the product name and version from the notepad.exe.
