Software Deployment Question
Old methods or new package software?
Hi, I have one question. For enterprise it's better to have a repackaging software like msi studio or the old methods are better? (switches to setup.exe or .msi) unattended installations... I need all the benefits and disadvantages of these things!
Thank you all
There's a learning curve with re-packaging, but you should always remember to do what is best for your environment without sacrificing the packaging standards, and keep licensing and future support in mind.

The single-most important advantage of re-packaging legacy installers is that you get to learn exactly what the installer is tryng to do with your carefully crafted workstation build. One of the earliest lessons you learn in this game is: never trust a vendor's installation package. More than several are more than happy to walk all over the files in your System32 folder!
