Need help picking a MSI creator...

Hi, I am looking for a good & affordable MSI creator.  I know if I can convert some of these exe apps into MSI files, I can utilize GP to push them to workstations.

So, what are you using or recommend for a MSI creator?

My environment:
Windows Server 2003
Windows XP Pro

Thanks for your time.

Free Windows Installer - MSI Installer Tool

I use this for simple MSI creation.... If you need to get too in depth though, it might not be sufficient....

At my last job the guys that did our packaging used a product from script logic

If you do go with a pay product I'd definitely test anything out first.  Scriptlogic is usually not cheap.


I use EMCO MSI Package Builder.

Awesome.  Thanks.  I will look into these.  We are nearing the implementation of SCCM 2007 in our environment and know that a msi packager would help even more to install plug-ins/updates of products like Adobe Reader, Flash Player, etc.

Thanks again.
