I hope you are packaging a Adobe product.. Isn't it?

If so, use AAMEE and do silent installation as suggested by Piyushnasa

You will have to use the setup.exe only and try to create a silent install with it. That will be a better option.

Which product is it?

Even if you don't require the 10th msi (feature), I doubt you will be able to remove it if it's required by the 11th msi.

It could be a CA in the 11th msi, that you could override.

Anyway, I would go with Piyushnasa's tip and use the setup (with a responsefile if possible).

Another option... if its an installshield setup.exe, you can use setup.iss to automate.  You then can go into the file and remove the installer you wish...

If there are .msi's inside of the .exe then you should be able to get each of the .msi's.

Run the .exe to the first dialog, then go to start | run... and type in


Find the temporary folder that contains all the .msi's.

Gather all the ones you need and create a .bat file to run each one individually (removing the one with the feature you don't want).

This is what I do for QuickTime.

You can try to run the uninstall string for the 10th msi at the end if you do not want that one installed
