As these files have come from the vendor in that format, then you really need to work with what the vendor has provided to produce a package, especially as it is already in the MSI format.

It's okay to have multiple command lines to install, one for the main installer and one for the patch, your deployment method can chain these together for the deployment.

Are the setup.exe files just bootstrapping the MSI installer in the folder? If so, can you just use the MSI with an MST to provide your customisations?

If running the MSI tells you to run the setup.exe, try adding the Public Property of ISSETUPDRIVEN=1 to your MST (or on the command line for testing).

Hope that helps,
