Ok, don't shoot the new guy. I'm stepping into an environment with a lot of applications and almost no documentation. I'm new to packaging installs which makes this worse. The packages appear to have been built with WinInstall Packager 8. For this one particular application called SBA Form.Wrx, there are several packages, I'm assuming two of them are upgrades. I received a new setup.exe which is an upgrade exe not a full version. What are the steps using WinInstall Packager to upgrade the application? Can I install the other msi packages then do a before snapshot, then install the new setup.exe and do an after snapshot? Any guidance is much appreciated.

usually you won't see setup.exe installations mixed with msi, so the setup.exe might be a wrapper for a patch, if indeed this is an upgrade. A better approach would be to build an administrative image including the patch.
