Im looking for a good, simple MSI packager, much like WinInstall. I have used WinInstall LE in the past but Ive been having problems with it on a lot of projects. I have a couple products in mind; AdminStudio, and the new version of WinINSTALL. I was wondering if there was anything else out there that I should consider. The primary use for this software is creating silent install packages for deployment via other mechanisms, such as SMS and RIS.

    We use this one:
    It was cheap and works really well.

    Assisted Solution

    If you don;t like WiX then look at Advanced Installer. There is a freeware version available which is really easy to use but slightly limited in features.
