The client I am working for/at right now, wants the following packaged into one msi.

App. installation
SP2
SP2 pack 1
Patch 1
Patch 2
Patch3

The patches aren't all of that, so that should be possible, the SP's are a different story. I don't think it's a good idea to package it all in one. i am thinking about future SP's and troubleshooting will make it so much harder.

What do you think?

Thanks.

What is the format (file extension) of the SPs and Patches?

They are all executables (setup.exe)

If these are legacy executables and not a wrapper to launch an embedded MSI then I would repackage them all together as one MSI.

Are you thinking about something special here?
If these executables are in fact legacy setups then you shouldn't have to think about future SPs, it would be different story if they were in the MSI or MSP format.
