I have an exe file I would like to deploy using group policy.  Does anyone knows of a free MSI Packaging tool I could use?  I tried WinInstall limited edition, but didnt create the package.

You have 15 uses until you have to buy this one.

It worked the same as the others.  It create the MSI Package, but once I push the package the application gets installed, but not the service.


Thanks anil_u, but it seems Microsoft pull the plug on SMS installer.  Does look like its available anymore...
I'd like to revive this thread.   Anyone have an opinion on good free OR paid installer tools?  Yeah free ones are good, but the whole intent of paying is to save time in configuration and management of setup packages (not just be able to generate them).
