Dear EPRS_Admin

You can use third party tools to achieve that, but these third party tools are not tested and confirmed by Microsoft.

We provide two workarounds:

1. Contact software provider to get a MSI file.
2. Deploy Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) to deploy EXE files.
For more information please refer to following MS articles:

SCCM is all but free, come on, that is a huge solution for a small problem :)
Simply take exetomsi and all is good http://www.exetomsi.com/
Screenshot_exetomsi2.0Unfortunately, they withdrew the free version (but compared to sccm, it's as good as free ;) )
I could send you version 2 via mail, it was free.
