Usually when you start the install, you'll see the name in the corner of the dialog box.

Hi abhinab,

I've been using Universal Extractor (http://legroom.net/software/uniextract) to upack different types of installers. Quite a useful tool and if I am not wrong, it also can show what the type of installer is. Woul be interesting to hear your feeback if you found it useful.

I run the setup.exe's through SetupCommander. http://www.setupcommander.com/ It determines what kind of setupsystem is burried in the exe and generates the apropriate unattend files for me. It even kicks the result into my distribution system. 

Bugger if I would spend time on stupid checks in exe's if i can automate that.
