I know which one is MSI installer package. BUT there are some for INNO SetUP, NSIS, Installshield installation packages too.

How to determine which one belongs to which category?

Usually when you start the install, you'll see the name in the corner of the dialog box.

Hi abhinab,

I've been using Universal Extractor (http://legroom.net/software/uniextract) to upack different types of installers. Quite a useful tool and if I am not wrong, it also can show what the type of installer is. Woul be interesting to hear your feeback if you found it useful.

I run the setup.exe's through SetupCommander. http://www.setupcommander.com/ It determines what kind of setupsystem is burried in the exe and generates the apropriate unattend files for me. It even kicks the result into my distribution system. 

Bugger if I would spend time on stupid checks in exe's if i can automate that.
