Search AppDeploy for 'ISSETUPDRIVEN'. The many, many threads returned will answer your question.

Bear in mind that vendors will often include functionality in their set-up stubs which really ought to be in the MSI so, once you have an MSI and MST, install it, run a snapshot tool, disable the relevant 'Uninstall' registry entry (so that you can trigger a re-install and not a Repair/Modify/Remove) and then run the vendor's set-up stub again. If anything turns up in the snapshot, you'll need to add it to your package.
