  • If you want to experience a whole new world of pain, almost unspeakable in its breadth, go ahead.

    I suspect you want to deploy using GPO and hence need it to be in an MSI? In a word, don't!!
  • No, im using Dell KACE to deploy

For kace you want to create msp and do admin distribution.  Zip up the files and upload to kbox.

why not create a msp with the 2010 admin kit. use admin install switches.

"setup.exe" /adminfile "Updates\setup.msp"
