Can be easy is the right term, in the case of wise or other snapshot software!

convert exe installer to msi for example:
-First you need a clean windows system (thats what i prefer) only the most critical software installed( drivers, service packs)
-install wise -> start the capture
-install the exe file
-carefully read all the registry file diffs found by the software
-make changes to shortcuts, ini files, whatever
-repack the app as msi file

A must read is www.appdeploy.com covering all aspects of software automation, packaging and deploying it to the end user.
