Hi Alice,
you need to call it with custom actions for install/uninstall.
Why not use WIWW? See:

They have done it for you already.

Create a new MSI (.WSI) and use the custom actions to install/uninstall or execute programs of your needs.
Don't forgett that you need at least one resource (component) in the package.

Hi Alice,
you really should go with WIWW.
Building a wrapper in Wise involves these steps:
- Create a blank project from template.
- Include the setup files and copy them to a local cache.
- Start the setup with a custom action:
The CA type depends on your needs.
Execute Program from Destination (type 34)
Execute Program from Installation (type 2)
Execute Program from Installed Files (type 18)
Execute Program from Path (type 50)
The last involves setting a property with the full path with an CA type 51.
-Further an other CA is needed to uninstall.

Ups: Kim was faster! :-)

If you are that new then why not use WIWW as Nick suggested?
They do also describe how to use their MSI wrapper.

Did you actually look at the link Nick provided?
It's described step-by-step IMO.

By the time you've found it, you could have captured the installer to create a new MSI. Apart from anything else, I want to know what an installer is going to do to my workstations so I'm going to capture every time, rather than wrap.

Hi,
how about a few seconds of searching:
http://www.404techsupport.com/2008/12/windows-installer-wrapper-wizard-and-a-better-firefox-3-enterprise-deployment/
http://web.archive.org/web/20091214060048/http://www.vinsvision.com/Articles/tabid/66/EntryID/15/Default.aspx
But i am not sure, if this stuff behaves 100% friendly with modern techniques like UAC.
