Looking for a MSI packerager but there are so many out there. Can I get feed back from all on what packager your using and appx. cost, and why you like it.

You're right, there are a lot out there and most of them offer some kind of trial which I definately recommend. I personally have tried a few of them and like Wise the best. The interface is very simple and intuitive. Although I mostly make exe (scritped) installations Wise MSI's have always been very reliable. There are some free packaging solutions out there and InstallAware probably offers more visual flexibility but most of the time Wise can do everything you need. The price for Wise installer is only a few hundred dollars.

Once again, download the trial and see if you like it.

I used Wise (up to 2004) for some years. Wise had/has a problems with repacking Installshield installations and most programs come with Installshield installers.
That is why I changed to Adminstudio.

I think that the interface of Adminstudio is just as good as that of Wise.
Adminstudio is capable of repacking an Installshield installer without any problems or need for scripting afterwards.

Good luck
