Looking for a good, simple & inexpensive MSI creator.

Hi, I am looking for a good, simple & inexpensive MSI creator.

I just need to create MSI packages, so I can use the msiexec commands to perform silent, unattended installs.

Thank you for your time.

I would like to find a MSI creator to wrap some exe apps I am required to install on lab computers, which is usually 2 weeks ago, because faculty didn't get around to telling me or I was suppose to read their minds.  Anyways, I was thinking of a simple MSI creator that would wrap the exe and then through a simple script I could execute it to all the lab computers.

Thanks again for your time and help.

No, not yet.  I was just thinking of a msi creator that would wrap the exe files.

But I will give this a try too.

Thanks.
