Having run the EXE and got to the first screen, remember to check Task Manager's process list for MSIExec running an MSI. Many EXEs are mere stubs for extracting an MSI and then executing MSIExec against it.

Also "MSIs" and "EXEs", with no apostrophe. We may as well keep standards up! :-)

According to the Flexera website:
'Standard' edition has the capability to "Repackage Applications for Windows Installer...", so you should be able to run the Repackager and capture an installation.

Go to you installation folder (usually "C:\Program Files (x86)\AdminStudio\2018\") and check if there is a "Repackager" folder or search you drive for ISLC.EXE or REPACK.EXE.
