Acroboat MSI plus folder want to create a silent exe

Thanks to this forum, I was able to sucuessfully create a silent install for Acrobat 9 Standard.

I have my admin point, the msi file and mst. I have a batch file I can click on and install it.

But what I really want is to smash it all up into a single .exe silent install.

I'm getting confused on how to google it. MSI packager, repackager.. ?

If I understood your quey clearly cant we use wise script to wrap all these(admin point folder.msi,mst and batch file ) in a single exe which can be installed silently.

There must be a quadzillion utilities out there which convert a batch/command file to an EXE. Google for 'convert BAT EXE'.

Ummm....so, you want to add all the source files from the AIP to the EXE as well, kind of like a self-extracting EXE which then goes on to run the MSI? What was the point in creating it? See, the name's a clue: it's an Administrative INSTALLATION POINT, a single location from which your users can install the application. You *could* use the original (non-admin) MSI - since it contains the files - with your MST. The command line you have will serve, unless you have a path specified in it. The problem then is, if you have to install any patches, you'd need to do that individually to each client, versus patching the AIP.
