MSIEXEC - Create silent .msi package

Hi,

I have an .msi file (i) and am trying to create a silent install package(ii) from it.

So basically run the (i) msi install and have it output the results to a new .msi (ii)  saving the options selected in the original install.
Has anyone completed this successfully and if so could you please confirm the switches used?

Many thanks.

No need to change the MSI. That's what makes it "silent" in group policy (unless MSI authors put special efforts to ask questions even in silent mode).

The goal is to have a silent installer with all of the relevant options selected that I can roll out via Group Policy.

The software author came back with the recommendation to use MS Orca to build the package

The software author probably is only cursory familiar with both Orca and with building packages.
