RePackage vs Silent Switches !!!
I got a basic doubt related to repackaging, if I got an executable for the packaging first I will check whether it is vendor msi or not and if it is vendor msi i will create a transform by using Adminstudio (which ever tool) and ll write a batch script to deploy msi and mst so I am happy in this case...
But If the executable is not a vendor msi I will have tweo options here a) Deploy using silent swtches with the help of scripts b) Repackage the application and create a msi using AdminStudio
here always for these king of apps, in the official websites I get the silent installation info by using silent switches/ using .ini files/ using response files something like that so I am usually following that... So am I following the good practices for enterprise deployment ??? or do I need to repackage it whether in the official website they mentioned silent switches??
How to decide should I repackage or use just silent switches as mentioned in the wesite ???
some examples for it are (Mozilla Firefox, Wireshark, 7zip, MATLAB...)
