Hi micromarch,
I couldn't find anything trustworthy on your question (some stuff on hacker sites).
Are you comfortable converting an exe file to an msi?

We have some links here on E-E with some guidance on that.

I doubt they will release an MSI file till it is in official release stage...

Actually, this might help:

We've just been loading it from the .exe file.

I did read over the weekend that IE7 will be a 'Critical Update' on 1 November, so if you're not specifically blocking it, it will install on all your computers running Automatic Updates.

Are You Using the Best Web Development Editor?

The worlds of web hosting and web development are constantly evolving. Every year we see design trends change, coding standards adapt and new frameworks/CMS created. With such a quick pace of change it’s easy to get lost trying to keep up.

See if your editor made the list.

Hi. yes I can create msi packages with wininstall LE but i thaught I would try to avoid the process that microsoft would actually release their own msi package for this, but I guess not. Either I create my own msi package or I wait till they release it as an update in november.
