MSI Installers

Hi All, Here's my situation presently we are using SMS Installer(Script Editor) for repackaging (ie wrapping over an exe file with silent switches and some other changes ) , but as we are planning to move to WIN 7 , we have issues with 64 bit compatabilty. Could any one suggest any tools for these. Thanks,

do a search for wise package studio or installsheild admin studio to decide what tool you or your company will be using

or go on google and do a review on wise / installshield

lots of topics on this one.

I worked on a contract last year converting sms logic into msi standards

not very straightforward in my opinion

As my esteened colleague says, there are only realistically 2 players: Wise and InstallShield. Both product lines have trial versions for you to play with. My preference is for Wise but I no longer recommend this path, for reasons I have outlined too many times here and elsewhere.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
