My apologies for such a newb question. I have a few applications here that we install by just copying a folder to the C drive. There's no EXE or MSI with these application. Does anyone know the best way to go about making MSIs for these kind of applications. We use Wise Package Stuido.

If you have wise it'll be a snap. In your project, just select the folder you want to add and add it to the correct folder on the local drive.

use the "Windows Installer Editor"
Go to "Files" and sellect the folders you want to add, and place them in the root.
After you can create shoortcuts and place them in the Program folder og desktop

If you want to be sure, that theese folders allways are installed on the C:\, just add the proberty : ROOTDRIVE = C:\
