As I understand it, MSIs which include Isscript can be coverted in InstallShield Pro to a 'normal' MSI, ie no dependency on the isscript engine.

Since deploying the multiple versions of Isscript can be a pain, what's the point? Why are MSIs distributed in this dependent format? Is functionality lost when MSIs are converted?

In some cases the ISScript does do something useful such as install a driver or pass parameters to MSIEXEC when doing an upgrade. It really depends on how the setup was authored. For the most part you can do away with it without much consequence but always be aware that sometime you will need to run that Setup.exe for everything to work.
