Good Morning everyone!
I am hoping I could ask some of you gifted people out there to lend me a helping hand. I have a vendor MSI which came uncompress from the Vendor. I need to compile the MSI into a self extracting and self installing single .EXE file. So people can download it from the internet and install it.

I think I could simply open the MSI and set the build options to "Single-file .EXE" with the media set to "Compress files inside .MSI". But that would be against best practices to open up a MSI file from the vendor.

So I was looking into Wise Script Editor. I could really use some help with this. I am not very skilled with Wise Script Editor.

I have Wise Package Studio 7 and Install Shield Admin Studio 11.5

I would deeply appreciate any help.

Use 7-zip and create a self extracting archive.
Use the help page of the "-sfx" switch to create a config file.

Create a wisescript blank template
add items:

Install file(s)
Execute Program

This compresses the files to a .exe (speicify the decompress directory*)

Then run Execute program with msiexec.exe under .exe path
command line: /i decompress direcotry*\setup.msi
