What are some inexpensive ways to convert an MSI to an EXE ?

Basically I need to push Crystal_Reports_Runtime_Setup.msi to 100+ Windows XP users and think Group Policy requires the file to be an EXE.

Actually Group Policy requires an MSI.  You might also consider SCCM in large MS environments.

Remote install can be done by using both .MSI and .EXE files, depends upon which file you have. MSI installation is better. You can refer the following link:
