I have to setup an older program on our school computers or network. It's called Gramar Tutor. There are three install disks (floppies).
Floppy 1 has the files finder.dat and setup.exe
Floppy 2 has the files finder.dat and setup.001
Floppy 3 has the files setup.002, desktop, and an empty directory called Resource.frk.

What would be the easiest way to change this into a MSI installer package?

Copy the contents of the 3 disks to one directory on a PC and it should be able to install without the floppies.

You would then need a repackaging program to perform a snapshot of the installation - e.g. Wise Package Studio

It may be possible to create an answer file for the setup process, so it could be installed silently without the need to create an MSI.

Hope this points you in the right direction,




I believe that the program you refer to is called Grammar Tutor - it would be remiss of me not to correct the spelling of such a word [:D]

Hi Jeremy,
another approach could be to use just an MSI-Wrapper. For WIWW, see: http://itninja.com/question/how-do-you-roll-out-new-machines?2081
