MSI technology

Trying to sell some co-workers on the technology. Roll-back features, deployment, updates with mst's have been my arguments.

What else can I use?

you could also tell them that MSFT technology is completely in the MSI direction.

IIRC in Windows vista, no more setup.exe. Windows Installer will be responsible for all applications.

Advertised installs, self-healing, upgrades/patches, policy based management, silent installs, user profile handling (self healing hkcu), verbose logging, scriptable API
msiexec.exe is an integral part of the OS
Integrates with AD,GP,WMI, .NET, application isolation, windows file protection, system restore.....
